Dealing with the waste of a consumer society is one of the greatest challenges of our modern times. But as UPS’ Sustainability Director, Peter Harris wonders: what if waste weren’t waste at all? He proposes a plan where the methane from the trash we produce fuels the machines that transport our critical goods: a closed-loop, circular economy that powers our world along the way.

TED@UPS was a TED-curated event featuring a diverse group of speakers from across the UPS community. Jointly produced by TED and UPS, the event put a spotlight on ideas, projects and insights that will contribute to the importance of pushing forward through obstacles.
