Eliminating the Idea of Waste with the TerraCycle Global Foundation (ADB CE Webinar Series, Session 05)
Thousands of tons of plastic waste are polluting Thailand’s canals, rivers, and seas every year. The TerraCycle Global Foundation collects and recycles that waste before it reaches and gets degraded and diluted across the ocean. In the space of 2 years, the Foundation has prevented over 560,000 kg of waste from entering the ocean.
The Foundation presented its waste management solutions and vision of a future in Thailand free from plastic pollution.
