Human Resources

In 2014, The Pivot Network partnered with us to create an innovative docu-comedy, Human Resources, which became the highest-rated original programming on the network.

While TerraCycle has grown significantly since then, both geographically and in the number of solutions we offer, we remain true to our mission to eliminate the idea of waste and still have the passion and energy you will see and feel while watching the show.

The Future of Packaging: From Linear to Circular

In the winner of the 2019 Independent Book Publisher Award Outstanding Book of the Year category gold medal and ""Most Likely to Save the Planet,"" Tom Szaky sets out to do the near-impossible: eliminate all waste. This book paints a future of a circular economy that relies on responsible reuse and recycling to propel the world towards eradicating overconsumption and waste, starting with packaging.

“This is a crash course on designing for the circular economy. The message is not to scale back but innovate upward to nurture an optimistic vision for a future of prosperity, with less waste. This book is for you—the future leaders—to engage and inspire you to learn from the best.”

Outsmart Waste

Ever-expanding landfills, ocean gyres filled with floating plastic mush, endangered wildlife: our garbage has become a massive and exponentially growing problem in modern society. Eco-entrepreneur Tom Szaky explores why this crisis exists and explains how can we solve it by eliminating the very idea of garbage. To outsmart waste, he says, we first have to understand it, then change how we create it, and finally rethink what we do with it.

“Tom illuminates pathways to finding ‘gold in garbage heaps’… Thanks to this book, I can no longer acquire and discard unconsciously, and as I’ve long said, change begins with awareness.” — From the foreword by Deepak Chopra
