Here’s an interesting concept to get the brain ticking: Waste is something that does not exist in nature, but is created by mankind.
We’re talking about the type of wastage that is now classed as non-recyclable, and cannot be decomposed or naturally recycled by environmental means.
Now that our lifestyles and society norms see us producing an unspeakable amount of waste, we should truly try to find ways to reduce it. All of it. That’s where new social enterprises have stepped in.
While some of us have felt optionless, there are innovative waste management brains out there thinking of new solutions. But just like any good team, they need us to come to the party and use their waste solution options.
TerraCycle is a recycling company like no other. It’s on a mission to recycle, upcycle, and transform our waste. This company doesn’t just talk the talk – even its offices are constructed with upcycled waste.
TerraCycle believe that all our typically non-recyclable items can in fact be recycled. So they work to divert masses of waste from landfill and have established a global network to recycle and repurpose these items.
TerraCycle calls it a ‘circular solution to all the waste management issues’ – they reuse or recycle every piece waste collected through community and commercial programs. Check these out:
