Upcycling

Founded in 2001, TerraCycle takes someone’s trash and turns it into someone else’s treasure. The company collects non-recyclable, post-consumer materials and remakes them into other consumer products, including backpacks and flower pots.

Fast forward to 2014, when the company’s revenues hit about $19 million. Clearly, there’s money to be made in garbage.

Today, TerraCycle partners with more than 100 brand owners in the U.S. But it’s a global company, doing business in 22 countries.
