Adam Minter – Stuff: The Hidden Borderland of Waste and Recycling

October 9, 2020


Date: Oct 9, 2020

In the early 2000s Adam Minter began exploring the hidden world of globalized recycling, producing groundbreaking reports from China, India, Ghana, and other countries. Then, in the mid-2000s, he abruptly shifted focus to the world of thrift stores and secondhand goods. In his talk, Minter will explain the circumstances that led him to this shift, and show why the growing tide of "single-use stuff" - from fashion to furniture - should concern waste and recycling professionals as much if not more than better-known problems like single-use plastics. Using his signature method of narrative storytelling, Minter will merge his personal experiences and observations with globalizing trends to illuminate this emerging frontier in recycling and waste management.
