TV show

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.

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 we can 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.
