'Loop: Solving for Disposability While Maintaining Its Virtues'
TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky discusses the theory of waste and how through business we eliminate the idea of it. Also, how one can find other areas of value, whether in packaging or products, beyond just the material value and hopefully be inspired that our future can be a world where the concept of waste doesn’t exist and yet our products can be more exciting, more convenient and better than ever.
