Earth911 Podcast: Emerald Packaging CEO Kevin Kelly On Plastic Use and Producer Responsibility

Play
Read more
Plastic pollution surged along with COVID-19 as the world's human population raced to protect itself from the virus. We talk with Kevin Kelly, CEO of Emerald Packaging, one of the largest plastic bag makers in the country. Kelly shares how in-store recycling programs have been curtailed by fears about spreading infections and the continuing increase in plastic usage compared to previous years. Emerald Packaging is working to reduce its reliance on virgin plastic resins, as well as introducing recyclable and compostable produce packaging.
Kelly also shares his personal concern that American business has not fully understood the threat from climate change, which he describes as "existential" in scope. If, for example, sea levels rise, the consequences to Emerald Packaging will be disastrous because food supply chains will be interrupted at every port, reducing the sales of vegetables and other produce and by extension produce bags. Kelly urges business leaders and consumers to work to reduce plastic use and to recycle any plastic that must be used. We discuss the recent defeat of California Senate Bill 54, the California Circular Economy and Plastic Pollution Reduction Act, which he opposed because it did not provide funding for recycling programs. Yet, Kelly is supportive of the California initiative that will attempt to put SB 54 into law at the ballot box since it will likely include a funding mechanism based in part on extended producer responsibility requirements.
That willingness to embrace producer responsibility, which requires companies to participate in collecting and recycling what they make, is encouraging. Earth911's Mitch Ratcliffe asked Kelly what percentage of a company's revenue should be allocated to recycling and got a concrete answer: 1%, which Kelly said was a quick estimate. If every business that makes a product that becomes waste at the end of its useful life were to contribute 1% of revenue to support recycling programs, it would go a long way toward revolutionizing the U.S. recycling system. If business refuses to shoulder that responsibility, Kelly said, they will eventually be driven out of business by the consequences of climate change.
Surprising and positive comments from a plastic manufacturer. Be sure to give this interview a careful listen.

Kevin Kelly on how travel has changed over the past 50 years [rebroadcast]

Read more

“I met people who would say, ‘I wish I had more time to travel like you do.’ They had more money than time, and I had more time than money. In terms of traveling it’s much better to have more time than more money. …If you have a chance to travel, just do it. You won’t regret it.” – Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly (@kevin2kelly) is a polymath in the truest sense of the word. Aside from being a co-founder of Wired magazine, he is also co-founder of the Rosetta Project, which is aiming to build an archive of all documented human languages, and he serves on the board of the Long Now Foundation. He is a photographer, writer, and futurist (he was “futurist adviser” on the 2002 Steven Spielberg movie, Minority Report), with much of his work centering on Asian and digital culture.

In this episode of Deviate, Rolf and Kevin discuss the inspiration for his Asia travel in the 1970s (3:00); getting around and dealing with language barriers (15:00); the people he encountered while traveling in Asia, and the life-expanding nature of his journey (32:00); what he packed (47:00); modernity and technology in Asia, and managing his photography during travel (1:07:00); and self-actualization, discovering oneself through travel, and what the future holds in Asia.

Tavi Costa and Guest Host Kevin Kelly: Macro Madness Series (Repost)

Play
Read more

(Originally published February 1, 2020)

On this exclusive Macro Matters Series, guest Host Kevin Kelly talks to Octavio “Tavi” Costa, Global Macro Analyst at Crescat Capital. Tavi discusses Crescat’s top investment themes, the favorable backdrop for precious metals, how the macro environment could impact Bitcoin, and much more.

Key Points

Crestcat is focused on China due to statistics predictive of major currency devaluation moving forward. Alongside Bitcoin, gold and other precious metals are poised to grow in value. Looking at the US job market, including unemployment rates, Tavi and his team believe we are at the peak of the U.S. business cycle.

Quotes

“The entire global financial market is addicted to cheap money and monetary and fiscal intervention. There’s no doubt about that. And what we see here today is that higher and higher units of debt are generating less and less growth.” –Tavi Costa

“The reason I don’t mess with other cryptocurrencies is because I just don’t fully understand—I barely understand Bitcoin itself, to be honest, so it’s been hard for me to get my arms around the other ones.” –Tavi Costa

“I believe that modern monetary theory is a total fallacy.” –Tavi Costa

Episode Highlights

  • What was Tavi’s upbringing like and how did he find his way to becoming a global macro analyst & portfolio manager?
  • Crestcat is focused on the US business cycle, the China credit bubble, and precious metals.
  • There are clear cracks in the US economy that lead Crestcat to be cautious.
  • Several metrics indicate that we’re going to see a deceleration in economic growth.
  • Countries like China are engaging in monetary experimentation aimed at driving inflation, which lowers debt burdens.
  • Over the next ten years, Tavi predicts we will see higher commodity prices.
  • Tavi is starting to see a correlation between Bitcoin and gold, partly because both assets are supply-constrained.
  • We’re at a peak level of reliance on central banks.
  • Bitcoin provides a huge opportunity for investors in terms of asset allocation while the likelihood of fiat currency debasement rises.
  • These hypotheses are based on looking at the most overvalued currencies in the world, like in China where there’s unprecedented debt levels, economic slowdown, and signs of inflation.
  • China is poised to see a major devaluation of its currency.
  • Historically, when emerging markets collapse, gold tends to rise.
  • For Tavi to reevaluate these predictions, there would have to be a fulfillment of the George Soros theory of reflexivity where the economy feeds on its own to improve itself.
  • The next trends to look for are with the jobs market in the US.
