59. A Game Show! Circular Economy with Double Dribble, REnato Lab, AIT
Play • 39 min

Double Dribble is a fashion & accessories brand that upcycles basketballs. The founders come from product design, but they’re now trying to design a new system for upcycling sports waste.

Today, we bring you “The Incinerator” - a game show where a circular economy startup goes in front of a panel and gets their ideas burned and turned into better ideas. (Cheat sheet: Circular Economy = Environmental Impact + Business)

Contestant today is Roy Huang, co-founder of Double Dribble, based in Taiwan.


Aining Ouyang, COO of REnato Lab, a circular economy consultancy based in Taiwan. Luke Martin, Cultural Affairs Office at the American Institute in Taiwan, responsible for educational and cultural programming. And Nate Maynard (Nature N8), an environmental consultant focusing on waste, ocean, and energy.
