Our offices

Each of TerraCycle’s offices around the world have been built and decorated from upcycled waste by TerraCycle’s team of Design Junkies. Meeting room “walls” are made from soda bottles and vinyl records act as dividers on top of desks made from old doors. The results are completely unique, dynamic, and upcycled office spaces that are enjoyed around the world by TerraCycle team members.

Garbage Moguls


The Future of Packaging

Tom Szaky sets out to do the 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.”
—Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever

Make Garbage Great

Make Garbage Great is the household primer on going and staying green. With more than 200 photographs and illustrations, and more than 100 tips and creative do-it-yourself upcycling projects, this book offers a visual guide to demystify the impact of “garbage” and how we can lessen it.

Outsmart Waste

Ever-expanding landfills, ocean gyres filled with floating plastic mush, endangered wildlife: our rubbish 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 waste. 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

Revolution in a bottle

Tom Szaky dropped out of Princeton University to found TerraCycle, a company that makes the non­recyclable, recyclable. Revolution in a Bottle is a rollicking tale of entrepreneurial adventure and an essential guide to creating a company that’s good for people, good for profits, and good for the planet.

“TerraCycle is doing more than selling good green products; it is changing how manufacturers, retailers, and consumers treat their waste. Read this book. I’m glad I did.”

—Ben Cohen, cofounder, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Graffiti at TerraCycle

From annual graffiti jams to the daily repainting of our walls, graffiti is an integral part of the TerraCycle culture. In addition to a constantly evolving wall-space, once a year artists from around the world come to participate in the TerraCycle Graffiti Jam. Artists come from all over the world to participate in this event and the TerraCycle office exterior is completely redesigned at the end of the jam.
