From improved recycling methods to digital watermarks that help get used plastic packaging back into the circular economy, Cotterman seeks materials and technologies that can keep hard-to-recycle packaging waste out of the environment. “I believe very strongly about conservation of resources. I believe in protecting people. And I believe in protecting nature,” Cotterman says. “By eliminating plastic waste, you actually do all three of those things."
