The Future of Packaging (Audio)
Only 35 percent of the 240 million metric tons of waste generated in the United States alone gets recycled, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This extraordinary collection shows how manufacturers can move from a one-way take-make-waste economy that is burying the world in waste to a circular, make-use-recycle economy.

Steered by Tom Szaky, recycling pioneer, eco-capitalist, and founder and CEO of TerraCycle, each chapter is coauthored by an expert in his or her field. From the distinct perspectives of government leaders, consumer packaged goods companies, waste management firms, and more, the book explores current issues of production and consumption, practical steps for improving packaging and reducing waste today, and big ideas and concepts that can be carried forward.

Intended to help every business from a small start-up to a large established consumer product company, this book serves as a source of knowledge and inspiration. The message from these pioneers is not to scale back but to innovate upward. They offer nothing less than a guide to designing ourselves out of waste and into abundance.

Narrated by Natalie Hoyt
Raised in a sound booth, Natalie Hoyt is an actual young adult who specializes in YA narration. No need to ask your voice to adopt a more youthful persona when you’ve got someone who dressed up as Hermione for those midnight Harry Potter book releases. Natalie’s first audiobook narration gigs came while she was working her way through college as a nanny. She would often show up for work costumed and in character, sporting an accent and a stack of books with which to entertain her young charges. Her PFH rate improved dramatically after she got her degree in the fine and performing arts and booked her first narration assignment for Audible.
