In this approximate 8-minute interview with Packaging World editor Rick Lingle, TerraCycle "eco revolutionary" and public relations manager Albe Zakes discusses TerraCycle's new line of office products sold at OfficeMax.
The line, which includes binders made with recycled corrugated from boxes, and trash cans made from recycled plastic, represents a major new direction for TerraCycle as it takes a step toward being the "eco-friendly P&G for the next century," according to Zakes.
In addition to explaining why TerraCycle redirected its bottle sourcing for the cleaners from post-consumer supplies to industrial sources, Zakes notes one green idea that didn't make it to OfficeMax: an eco-friendly, treeless paper sourced from rhino poop.
The associated feature article, TerraCycle repurposes packaging for OfficeMax, appears in the July 2008 issue of Packaging World.
