NEW YORK CITY—MAY 29, 2013—Jonathan K. Hsu, CEO of Recyclebank®, the company that rewards people for taking everyday green actions with discounts and deals, will discuss the importance of invention and continued advancement in the recycling industry today at the Social Innovation Summit 2013. The session, “Reduce, Reuse, Replenish,” brings Hsu together with Tom Szaky, CEO of TerraCycle, to raise awareness around key developments in recycling technologies and discuss initiatives to move the industry forward.  

The Social Innovation Summit connects and inspires a global network of leaders to discuss the key strategies and business innovations creating social transformation across the corporate, investment, government and nonprofit sectors. To increase conversation around the next generation of recycling ingenuity, this panel will spotlight those companies already innovating and solving for an important problem and discuss the next steps society must take to move the needle on recycling rates. Hsu will specifically share Recyclebank’s experience as a company bringing awareness to the recycling problem — discussing how the company has spearheaded programs to change consumer behavior, enhanced green lifestyle decisions and built customer loyalty to inject momentum toward a zero waste economy.

“As we continue to energize global conversations about sustainability, it’s important we don’t forget the importance of recycling. It’s one the easiest things an individual, community or nation can do to help the environment,” said Hsu. “At Recyclebank, we believe that engaging people on all levels can motivate them to change their behavior towards recycling and generally make more sustainable choices in their lives. I’m honored to have the opportunity to discuss this topic and share our perspective with the larger community.”
