In an unlikely turn of events, mixed with a bit of spontaneity, Rebecca Baron and Bonny Yu start a podcast. Educational, up-to-the-minute, alive and witty, this podcast will deliver complex topics in a simple way. Still not convinced and wondering who are we? In short, we are just two students excited to transform complex ideas into engaging discussions. Join us at backofanapkin.org

Looking beyond the current extractive industrial model, a circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive societal benefits. Reinforced by a transition to renewable energy sources, the circular model builds economic, natural, and social capital.

This got the two of us wondering: how exactly is the circular economy model being implemented in different companies and why haven’t they all switched to this system yet? Join us as we dive into the issues and breakthroughs that contribute to why every company isn’t equipped for this economic model. We will be speaking to Nikki Mertens, Operations and Sustainability Lead at ChopValue and Marc Wandler, co-founder and CEO at Susgrainable.


In this week’s episode, we’ll also be examining ways to remodel the food and drink industry, the impact of the pandemic on companies’ sustainability goals, and how companies leverage technology to redirect their current processes.
