These Guys Found a Way to Recycle K-Cups, and the Finished Products May Astound You
We all think we know how to recycle because we can toss an aluminum can in its appropriate bin, but how is it actually done? Get a glimpse of the real science that goes down alongside TerraCycle’s company happy hours and team yoga activities in our new video series, On the Ball With Dan Harris. Harris is the director of zero waste boxes at TerraCycle, as featured on Participant Media's Human Resources on Pivot, so he knows a thing or two about not wasting time (get it?).
Human Resources is an unconventional, comedic, behind-the-scenes look at TerraCycle, an innovative recycling company whose mission is to eliminate the idea of waste. TerraCycle takes anything and everything that is landfill bound—from potato chip bags to cigarette butts—and recycles, upcycles, reuses, or otherwise transforms these objects into something else. Using science, creativity, and a little DIY attitude, it's changing the way we think about trash.
This story is presented by Human Resources on Pivot, which was produced by TakePart's parent company Participant Media.
