PRINTCast: The PRINT Podcast Studio is a curated collection of cutting-edge podcasts we love about design, creativity, branding, books, and further subjects afield. Soon, we’ll have a dedicated digital listening room. In the meantime, we present Design Museum’s Design is Everywhere, hosted by Sam Aquillano and Liz Pawlak—a “podcast featuring stories of people and organizations using design to make an impact and change the world.”

The latest episode (No. 49): “The To-Go Cup for a Better, More Sustainable World.”

Here’s more from the Design is Everywhere team:

In this episode, Sam learns more about the NextGen Consortium to address the world’s single-use food packaging waste. In 2018, Closed Loop Partners launched the NextGen Consortium to bring together leading brands, industry experts and innovators. Sam chats with Kate Daly, the managing director for the Center of Circular Economy at Closed Loop Partners, who explains what a circular economy is and how the Consortium gleaned consumer insights for better designs. Later on in the show, they are joined by Chris Krohn, who is a portfolio lead at IDEO, which is running and designing the pilots in the San Francisco Bay Area on behalf of the NextGen Consortium. Chris explains the process of redesigning reusable to-go cups and the concepts that came out of the NextGen Consortium.
