Joshua welcomes back Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle, to continue the conversation around the triumphs and challenges he’s faced in pursuit of his goals. We’ll learn what it takes to create platforms such as TerraCycle and Loop and how sometimes it’s not the immediate effects but the unintended side-effects that play a bigger role in the environment.
