Tom Szaky is founder and CEO of social enterprise TerraCycle, which aims to eliminate the idea of waste by turning used goods and packaging into new products. It operates in 21 countries to collect typically nonrecyclable items through national, first-of-their-kind recycling platforms. Leading companies work with TerraCycle to figure out how to make hard-to-recycle materials, such as ocean plastic, into new products. Its Loop platform aims to change the way the world shops with favorite brands in refillable packaging offered with convenience and style.
