Book Details

Genre: Non-fiction, business, economy, environment

Synopsis: In just 30 years, the world’s annual output of waste will reach an estimated 3.4 billion tons. This global tsunami of waste threatens our environment, our economy, even our relationships. To survive, we must not only contain it but do something with it.

To turn the tide, innovative investors and inventors are building an economy that treats trash as a valued commodity and an ever-renewing resource. Trash to Treasure: Exploring What It Takes to Build a Business from Waste follows the journeys of modern-day pioneers making waves—and money—from waste, including:

  • Patagonia, a global fashion manufacturer with a goal to sell fewer goods to consumers by extending the life of the company’s products
  • Rust Belt Riders, a startup that diverts food from landfills and transforms it into garden soil which, in turn, feeds more plants to produce more food and fuel a circular economy
  • Hungry Harvest, a subscription service that rescues farmers’ not-ready-for-Instagram produce—20 million pounds of it so far—and delivers it by the boxful to front doors and food deserts
READ THIS NEXT  The Wicked Oath by Michael L. Lewis

Shift your perspective on waste and you, too, can turn Trash to Treasure and earn disposable income from the things people throw away.

About the author

Kelsey Rumburg knows a thing or two about making a sea change. An exciting, early career had turned her into an international traveler and American expat. But it had also expanded her worldview, bringing into focus the things that mattered most to her—things that were out of reach from her position on the corporate ladder. So at twenty-five, she did what one does at twenty-five: she went home. From her family’s Midwestern farm, Kelsey hatched a plan to use her passion for problem-solving to make a positive impact on the world around her. Now rooted in Miami’s startup ecosystem, Kelsey helps entrepreneurs build businesses that develop solutions to environmental, economic, and social issues.
