Ian Rosenberger — Garbage In, Life-Giving Products Out


Ian Rosenberger was born and raised in Pittsburg. His life and career took him all over the world experiencing new things all the time and meeting the most amazing people. One of those places he began to visit frequently was Haiti. As a result of the trip he made right after the 2010 earthquake which claimed the lives of over 250,000 people, he started Thread and Team Tassy (which is now known simply as Work). Ian is a truly exceptional leader running these organizations that are changing the world in so many tangible ways. They are damn-givers through and through.

Toward the end of our conversation, you’ll hear me state that this podcast would release on September 18. Obviously, it’s not September 18. We bumped this podcast up a few weeks because we wanted to give you more time to check out the Kickstarter they have going on for their new backpack made from 100% recycled canvas. The canvas was made entirely from discarded plastic bottles. I got my hands on one of these backpacks and let me tell you, it’s fantastic. Super functional. Looks great. It’s wonderful. AND we are going to be giving away one of the backpacks they are currently kickstarting! So, follow us on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram because we are going to launch the giveaway later this week. BUT only one of you will win this bag so I’d recommend you back this project on Kickstarter to ensure you get one or two or three or ten at a discounted rate. Go to abetterbackpack.com to learn more about this amazing product!
