Here at Trash-2-Cash, we love podcasts. We like funny ones, serious ones, and inspiring ones. We like hearing people talk about their passions, and the opportunity to delve deeper than a blog post allows. So, we decided to start podcasting too.

At first our podcast series explored the people, methods and tools involved in the Trash-2-Cash (T2C) project, setting up the 'big picture' of our world. Once we reached the outcomes phase of the project we began to host in-depth discussions about the impact these will have on the world.

It’s about understanding the entire context of the product or service, not just the materials they’re made from. Gustav’s work identifies where the hot spots are, and how these might be managed out to make a real and measurable difference.
