Hi there. I'm Tiffany! I'm a designer that remakes stuff out of other stuff.
I'm an eco-lifestyle expert who spreads do-it-yourself recycling goodness with simple zero waste solutions.
I work at the mega recycling company, TerraCycle, where my title is Chief Design Junkie.
Our latest effort to eliminate the idea of waste is called Loop, a new circular shipping system.
I proudly lead the Design Team that guides the design of all of the packaging to make the system work.
My upcycling career began with an MFA in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute where I developed my thesis Trash Nouveau - Reincarnating Garbage Into Usable Objects. My book ReMake It! (Sterling Publishing), is filled with nearly 100 do-it-yourself projects for turning trash into new. My series of recycling kits are under the ReMake It name, too. Woo woo!
If you're looking for me on TV, you can catch me and my TerraCycle friends on the TV series Human Resources from the Pivot Network. All three seasons are now available on iTunes and Amazon Prime. I'm also one of four competing designers on the show Trashformers on FYI TV. And my friend Kat and I take on my kitchen makeover in a recent episode of Renovation Realities over at the DIY Network.
