ABOUT US

TerraCycle is the world leader in collecting and recycling waste that is traditionally considered non-recyclable. In conjunction with several of the largest and most prominent consumer products companies in the world, TerraCycle is now advancing an international initiative on the future of packaging, with a view to ending disposable packaging. The “service” is to be launched in early 2019 initially in two major cities, one in Europe (Paris) and one in the US (New York). We are currently hiring an intern to support the Parisian launch based in the TerraCycle London office.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

TerraCycle is working on a cutting-edge circular economy initiative that is poised to greatly decrease the use of disposable plastic by moving some of the most popular fast-moving consumer goods (those that use the most disposable packaging) to highly durable packaging forms. Interns will support the initiative by carrying out market research and assisting with various administrative tasks associated with the project.
