Major Session & Keynote: Changing the Landscape of Waste, sponsored by Kuehne+Nagel

TerraCycle, operates the largest supply chain for ocean plastic in the world, partnering   with companies to integrate this material into their packaging. Working with some of the world’s largest brands, such as P&G, Nestle and Unilever to achieve their commitment to the environment, Tom is creating circular solutions for hundreds of waste streams such as cigarette butts, dirty diapers and used chewing gum that otherwise have no path to be recycled.

Tom and TerraCycle have received hundreds of social, environmental and business awards and recognition from a range of organizations including the United Nations, World Economic Forum, Fortune Magazine and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Tom is the author of four books, “Revolution in a Bottle” (2009), “Outsmart Waste” (2014), “Make Garbage Great” (2015) and “The Future of Packaging” (2019). Tom created, produced and starred in TerraCycle’s reality show, “Human Resources” which aired on Pivot from 2014-2016 and is syndicated in more than 20 foreign markets on Amazon and iTunes.
