Revolution in a Bottle

tomszaky_1469

I’m reading a great book which was provided to me from Penguin Books. It is the story of Tom Szaky who dropped out of Princeton to start TerraCycle. His green business takes food wastes and red wiggler worms and makes natural fertilizer. It sounds easy, but it is not. I have only read through Chapter 5, and I am blown away by the amount of venture capital that the undertaking is requiring to be successful.

While he is receiving his food wastes for nothing, or folks pay him to take it away, an enormous amount of money is still needed to keep the business afloat.

The aim of the book is to show how we can use our wastes efficiently. My self-employed mind right now is stuck on the fact that to make money we need money.

When I have finished the book, I’ll give a complete review.

It was released in paperback on April 1.
