The World Bank reported that China is set to produce twice as much waste as the US by 2030, and we ask ourselves: where will that all end up? Today, I'm joined with Jonathan Cruysberghs, Co-Founder of Feibao to discuss waste recycling in China and what we can do to help out. Feibao is a passion project that he co-founded in Shanghai in 2016 with Clement Saint Ellier. It links the waste we want to recycle with someone in the city who picks it up and will dispose or reuse it. It offers bins and containers for waste storage to offices, schools and compounds. Feibao has gained traction in Shanghai as it serves a dual purpose, while it is environmentally friendly, it also connects local collectors to a new income stream. In this episode, we discuss how Feibao is actively helping the F&B community in Shanghai and changing the waste management landscape one step at a time.
