Mikah Sargent talks with professor Kate O'Neill about her new book, ‘Waste’ and what we can do about the ever-growing amount of trash each of us produces. They discuss what happens to much of our e-waste and how tech companies could work proactively, including the right-to-repair. One big issue is how China changed recycling world-wide, complicating the recycling industry and what happens next. Some solutions to this problem include finding alternatives to plastic and developing a global solution to our waste problem. Mikah and Kate also coin the term "Garbology."
