TerraCycle - Tom Szaky in person - EN

TerraCycle is on a mission to reduce waste on our planet through upcycling and recycling pre- and post-consumer waste.

TEASER VIDEO for the FREE event on March 22nd.


Founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky, then a 20-year-old Princeton University freshman, TerraCycle, Inc. began producing organic fertilizer by packaging liquified “worm poop” in used soda bottles. Since the inauspicious start, TerraCycle has become one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world.

More than just a recycling company, TerraCycle strives to be a driving force behind increasing environmental awareness and action. Our goal is to be a trusted resource for families, schools, communities, and even corporations to find tips, stats, facts, tactics, and news to help them live a greener, cleaner lifestyle. Together, we are Eliminating the Idea of Waste®.

Today, TerraCycle is a highly-awarded, international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products. TerraCycle is widely considered the world’s leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable, post-consumer waste.

TerraCycle works with more than 100 major brands in the U.S. and 22 countries overseas to collect used packaging and products that would otherwise be destined for landfills. It repurposes that waste into new, innovative materials and products that are available online and through major retailers.

Tom Szaky fiatal egyetemistaként alapította meg a TerraCycle-t, hogy olyan hulladékanyagok hasznosítására találjon megoldást, amelyek újrahasznosításával senki nem foglalkozik. A TerraCycle ma már több mint száz nagy márkával együttműködve, világszerte 26 országban, 50+ millió ember részvételével gyűjti be a használt csomagolásokat és termékeket, amelyek egyébként a szemétlerakókra kerülnének. Tom Szaky cége 2012 óta Magyarországon is jelen van, jelenleg két aktív programja működik neves nemzetközi gyártók támogatásával. Részletek: www.terracycle.hu

      I wish I could have been in two places at the same time :) I'm sure it was great - and it looks like there was a good turnout.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
