Trash to Treasure: Opportunities in the Waste Industry


Every day 28k tons of single-use plastic finds its way into the world’s oceans, ~86k dump trucks full of used or discarded clothing are either burned or dropped in a landfill, and ~109k tons of used electronics (the weight equivalent of ~68m laptops) are discarded.

Left unchecked, that would certainly spell environmental disaster, but it can also spell something else — big business opportunities.
