Rubicon’s Vice President of Sustainability David Rachelson was recently quoted in a Waste360 article on the momentum behind single-use plastics bans. Here is David’s quote from the piece.

“The single-use plastic crisis compels us to address fundamental problems in global waste and recycling practices,” said David Rachelson, vice president of sustainability for Rubicon, in a statement. “We must make systemic changes that incentivize material producers, product manufacturers and recovery systems to abandon dependence on single-use plastics. Instead, we need to advance widespread adoption of circular solutions that create value from materials already in circulation, redirecting ‘waste’ generated from the prevailing linear take-make-dispose model as inputs for new products.”
