With shows like “Jersey Shore” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” as popular as they are, it seems it was only a matter of time before a New Jersey TV show about actual trash got made. Only this time, it’s about Trenton-based TerraCycle and saving the planet one Capri Sun pouch at a time instead of botox and booze and behaving badly.
On Saturday August 21, National Geographic Channel will air three all-new episodes of “Garbage Moguls,” an inside look at the zany way TerraCycle, “the coolest little start-up in America” (Inc. magazine), develops products made completely out of trash. Led by Princeton University drop-out and worm poop connoisseur Tom Szaky, the show follows TerraCycle’s team of young “eco-capitalists” as they brainstorm, argue over, go dumpster diving for, and eventually create new products that help solve America’s waste problem.
Episodes include a re-airing of the “Garbage Moguls” pilot (7 p.m.), “Pet Project” (8 p.m.), “Fishy Business” (9 p.m.) and “All Nighter” (10 p.m.)
