Many of us dutifully recycle. We think we are doing our part for the environment by throwing those items into the “blue bin”. Most companies have made the consumer responsible for recycling the packaging and products that have been sold to them, but how much of an impact does recycling actually make? Discover the exciting companies, right here on the Central Coast that are innovating ways to change their products from taking a one-way trip to the landfill toward products and processes that are designed to avoid the landfill altogether. Learn about their trials and successes as well as the economic benefits that emerge as they embrace the concept of a circular economy.

Who is benefiting from these changes and is there any harm?
This program dives into the impact of machine learning and cryptocurrencies on the creation, exchange, and collection of art.
