Turning Garbage into Gold: The TerraCycle Plant Food Story

20 min
HD62.5 .T88 2008 DVD

Made from waste, packaged in waste: that's the mantra of TerraCycle, an entrepreneurial startup that uses worms to turn premium organic garbage into fertilizer that is then packaged and shipped in repurposed plastic containers and cardboard cartons. This fast-paced program will have viewers sweating right along with TerraCycle's 22-year-old founder Tom Szaky as it tracks his company through three stressful years of unceasing effort that finally leads to pay dirt. TerraCycle is a triumph of eco-capitalism, which makes this program an excellent case study for both business and environmental science courses.
