The Future of Home Recycling: A Talk with Lasso
Wednesday, Nov. 17th / 11am EST
Our currently pitiful home recycling rates – with 91% of plastics not recycled – means that only a revolution in the way we approach recycling will be able to solve this challenge. Lasso could well be that revolution, with a technology ‘for every home’ that takes the hassle out of a lot of the problems associated with modern curbside recycling.
Join us as we learn more about the entrepreneurs behind this innovation and the system itself – a truly game changing turnkey answer to a complex and frustrating problem.
