Tom and TerraCycle are part of the sustainable business movement. Now his company produces a myriad of products, all from recycled material. It’s an idea he calls Sponsored Waste. TerraCycle gets low cost waste materials by working with companies such as Kraft Foods, Frito-Lay, Mars, Kashi, Stonyfield Farm, CLIF BAR and Honest Tea. TerraCycle upcycles the collected ‘waste’ material into affordable, eco-friendly products. Now, this Oreo bag is much more appetizing than worm poop!
Tom's been recommended by several people as an exciting and persuasive speaker. National Geographic TV seems to think so - they will be starting a season of Garbage Moguls, after a successful pilot last year.
