About this Event

On the Docket: "Zero Waste" -- Fad or Force?

A Grit Daily Live production sponsored by New York Fair Trade Coalition -- in collaboration with Microsoft and Microsoft for Startups filmed in Times Square, New York. Includes drinks -- alcoholic and not.

With media from Grit Daily, Esquire, Vice, The Rising, and Hackernoon— with special guest and co-moderator Drew Grant.

We've heard the stats:

- The US is the "King of Trash" -- producing 250 million tons per year (National Geographic)

- While 75% of consumables are recyclable -- we only recycle 30% of it (CNN)

- 11 million tons of clothes, shoes and textiles go to landfills annually (Rubicon)

Here to go a layer deeper behind the sometimes scary psychology, economics, and structural obstacles behind those numbers:

7:45 - 8:10 PM Moderated by guest moderator Brendan Sullivan (Lady Gaga’s DJ, contributor, Esquire) and Drew Grant (Managing Editor) with:
