Publisher's Summary

Only 35 percent of the 240 million metric tons of waste generated in the US alone gets recycled, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This extraordinary collection shows how manufacturers can move from a one-way take-make-waste economy that is burying the world in waste to a circular, make-use recycle economy.   

Steered by Tom Szaky, recycling pioneer, eco-capitalist, and founder and CEO of TerraCycle, each chapter is coauthored by an expert in his or her field. From the distinct perspectives of government leaders, consumer-packaged-goods companies, waste-management firms, and more, the audiobook explores current issues of production and consumption, practical steps for improving packaging and reducing waste today, and big ideas and concepts that can be carried forward.  

Intended to help every business from a small start-up to a large established consumer product company, this audiobook serves as a source of knowledge and inspiration. The message from these pioneers is not to scale back, but to innovate upward. They offer nothing less than a guide to designing ourselves out of waste and into abundance.

Starting Handbook to understand Linear vs Circular

Very informative. For a beginner it clearly outlines the genesis as well as status of the issue of packaging waste as well recommendation of next stepa to be taken. The distinction between linear and circular system becomes alive.
