Description

Human Resources is a comedic real-life occu-series about TerraCycle, an innovative company whose mission is to “eliminate the idea of waste.” Run by Tom Szaky, an idealistic 32-year-old entrepreneur, TerraCycle, one of the fastest growing green companies in the world, gets paid top dollar to take anything and everything that is landfill-bound – from potato chip bags to cigarette butts – and recycle, up-cycle, re-use, or otherwise transform these objects into something else. Tom and his colleagues at TerraCycle dream of a day when garbage cans will belong on the trash heap of history.

Headquartered in Trenton, New Jersey, and with 26 offices around the world, TerraCycle is a breeding ground for idealism: Tom believes firmly that if you can dream it, you can do it – and he encourages his employees to try to come up with bigger and better ways of reducing and transforming waste. The result is brilliant recycling breakthroughs and avant-garde design concepts that are helping pioneer an often-ignored industry.

The company’s staff of 120 run the gamut, from nerdy hippie types who take time away from their (recycled) desks to snack on kale chips and take part in office yoga, to skeptical, more “corporate” employees who work hard, but leave the TerraCycle mission behind when they head home at the end of the day. These differences of opinion provide endless comedic clashes around the office.
Fortunately, everyone feels like they’re an important part of the company’s quickly growing family, and share a passion for TerraCycle’s cutting-edge brand, including graffiti, gong hits, and communal lunches.

From figuring out how to recycle used diapers to planting trees in a junkyard car, there’s always plenty going on at TerraCycle. Human Resources chronicles the company’s corporate and social mission, while simultaneously documenting the unique, funny, and often awkward social dynamics amongst its young staff. This series blends environmental innovation with laugh-out-loud comedy into a reality TV cocktail for the 21st century.
