As World Oceans Day approaches, a leading environmental engineer talks about recycling plastic, corporate responsibility and where she sees glimmers of clean-up hope.
When she’s not teaching at the University of Georgia or speaking at conferences and symposia around the world, Dr. Jenna Jambeck is likely to be found wearing green rubber boots and black gloves while digging through some trash. She might be at a landfill near Athens, Georgia, on a beach near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, or along the banks of the Ganges in India.
A secret Montreal laboratory has developed a breakthrough technology that may help save the planet – and keep your local taxes low at the same time.
While you dutifully separate household waste into a rainbow of colorful recycling bins, many cities aren’t able to recycle household plastics any more. Calgary recently found itself holding 1,400 tonnes of plastics — with nowhere to send them.

Another part of what I cover, though, is the kinder, gentler material that’s under the hood—company culture, CSR, and the like. Environmental sustainability is a huge issue that in my experience doesn’t get talked about enough in big tech.
