Today TriplePundit, Neil Hawkins, Jeff Wooster and Andrew Winston came together for a special Twitter Chat about the circular economy and the innovative Energy Bag project.
During this hour-long Twitter Chat, we took an analytical look at the circular economy in America. We discussed the transition to a circular economy, where waste is designed into new products and services. We also took a deeper look at how consumers can turn plastic into energy.
The Dow Chemical Co. worked with the city and citizens of Citrus Heights, California, on the Energy Bag pilot program. Over the course of the three-month program, 7,800 households collected nearly 8,000 bags of plastic waste, which was turned into 512 gallons of synthetic crude oil. Most importantly, nearly 3 tons of plastic waste was kept out of landfills!
Prompted by TriplePundit, Hawkins, Wooster and Winston addressed the following topics, and more:
