TerraCycle’s new reality show, “Human Resources”, is giving new meaning to “trash television.” Every episode encapsulates the daily functions of our forward-thinking company as we attempt to make recycling and “upcycling” a part of the world’s everyday business operations.
In our next episode, airing tonight, Friday, September 12th at 10pm EST on Pivot, viewers will get a feeling for our company culture—where small dogs roam free, employees partake in sporadic yoga sessions, and the spontaneous shot from a Nerf gun turns the office floors into a foam-pelleted battleground. This free-spirited nature does not fly by all employees, as one disgruntled employee decides to take action.
Meanwhile, two employees each sell the same million pounds of recycled plastic. The team scrambles to find the additional materials needed to fill the extra order by testing the components of recycled products in the in-house laboratory.
Tonight’s episode also highlights TerraCycle’s partnership with Capri Sun and the Drink Pouch Brigade program. In a brief meeting, Tom and the Capri Sun representatives agree to double the monetary reward from one cent per pouch to two cents, to be donated to the non-profit organization or school of the collector’s choice.
