Terracycle Pioneers Eco-Capitalism

These guys are “growing a better world” and in essence pioneering . I’m convinced this is going to sweep the nation and the world and become the new evolved form of economics and governance. Terracycle collects and buys all types of waste products that would otherwise go into a landfill, and then upcycles these resources into new products that can be reintroduced into the marketplace and sold for a profit. It’s so simple, and yet the way it should be. No more landfills, no more waste, no more garbage… no more linear supply chain. Create a renewable world! This is what the movement of our times is all about. You gotta love the current crash… beyond the short term pain, it’s going to give us the much needed humility and clarity that we so desparately need to become enlightened to the harmony that exists between man and nature.

A couple cool projects over at Terracycle are ironically enough related to the wine industry. Go figure! To quote George Chavelier at Terracyle who recently contacted us regarding our writings: “Greg, I agree about vineyards and wineries becoming the poster children for the green movement – who’s more likely to go that way than people with such a passion for that which comes from the Earth?”

Terracycle is offering refurbished old Kendal Jackson wine barrels as The Rotary Composter and Rain Barrel water storage containers. They’re also getting wine enthusiasts, bars, restaurants, and wineries around the country to send in used corks, which they upcycle into cool new products like doormats. Both the upcycled cork products and wine barrel composter and water storage units are available in major retailers nationwide, including Sam’s Club and Home Depot.

Here’s a video on how to create your compost bin with Terracycle’s Rotary Composter:

Terracycle is doing something incredibly innovative that is going to help completely renovate capitalism. They are essentially taking trash off peoples’ hands and innovatively recycling it into sellable products. What a business model, and what a benefit to the environment. Check out their Eco-Capitalist guidebook for more info and check out the other products they’re selling. Seems to me that their creating a new type of marketplace… a renewable marketplace.
