Using the Circular Economy to Tackle Global Challenges with Caroline Vanderlip

In major cities, there is no more room for landfill. In NYC alone, they are trucking their waste 6 hours north. The single-use products contribute significantly to the environmental crisis. This is no longer a tomorrow event. This is a current issue, and we need to do something about it. This week’s episode 37 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about using the circular economy to tackle global challenges!

In this episode of the How Women Inspire Podcast, Julie Castro Abrams and Caroline Vanderlip share the importance of the circular economy and what it means for climate change.

Caroline Vanderlip puts her passions and creativity into building businesses like Re:Dish, and is excited to be able to tell its huge environmental impact story. A successful entrepreneur, Caroline has launched businesses within parent companies (CNBC, AT&T Personal Online Services), as well as independent entities like the publishing technology company, SharedBook. Armed with a BA from Vassar and an MBA from NYU, Caroline is a life-long learner, now focused on sustainability and the huge impact that Re:Dish can have as it supports a shift from a linear to a circular economy.

Some of the talking points Julie and Caroline go over in this episode include:

  • Starting a company at the start of the pandemic.

  • Using transferable skills and a great team to grow a new business.

  • The product that causes the most issues with climate change and has the biggest impact.

  • The transition from tech to operationally heavy businesses in where future investments and funding will be going.
