I first learned of TerraCycle while working on Human Resources, a television show that shed a light on the company and serious issues facing our planet in a comedic way... kind of like The Office, but real and with much higher stakes. Going into this book knowing a bit about the history of the company didn’t take away from it being an enjoyable read. I still learned a lot and was inspired by Tom not only as an environmentalist, but as an entrepreneur.
