Tom Szaky, Founder & CEO, TerraCycle


Tom founded TerraCycle 20 years ago when he was a student at Princeton.


Today, TerraCycle is the world’s leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable post-consumer waste.


They work with more than one hundred major brands — including Tesco, Heinz and Coca-Cola — in twenty countries across the globe to collect used packaging and products that would otherwise be destined for landfills.


Through their ‘Loop’ initiative, they are changing the way we shop by creating sustainable new packaging solutions and enabling consumers to enjoy their favoruite products from popular consumer brands in refillable containers.


A fascinating and thorough exploration of the world of recycling, with key insight into the economics, solutions, opportunities and challenges. We can all make a difference.
