Eliminating the Idea of Waste

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by

Waste is a modern man made idea that through the creation of national collection and solution programs can be eliminated.  Tom Szaky, founder of TerraCycle shared at the 2012 LOHAS Forum how TerraCycle, through partnership with major manufacturing companies from Frito-Lay to Imperial Tobacco, has launched national collection and solution programs for hundreds of various traditionally non-recycbale waste streams (ranging from chip bags to cigarette butts) in over 20 countries around the world. This was a great presentation on some cutting edge LOHAS innovation!
