TED Talk: The Circular Economy
November 10, 2019 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Until now, most of our production of consumer materials has been one directional: make it-use it-discard it. This model is unsustainable in the long run. What if we shifted the model to be circular and sustainable? Kristin Kinder shows us how. Working as a “garbage” anthropologist, Ms. Kinder was inspired to work for change in our country. She has dumpster-dived all over the USA and helped Fortune 500 businesses see the waste they generate in a new light. As Ecova’s* Product Manager for Waste, her background in recycling education and behavioral change has prepared her to develop waste programs that improve clients’ cost savings, efficiency, and recycling rates. By the end of her TEDx Talk, she will have convinced you to rethink how you use resources daily.Share this:
