PIVOT GREENLIGHTS SEASON TWO OF ITS CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SERIES, "HUMAN RESOURCES"

Season One Finale of the Workplace Docu-Series Airs Tonight Friday, October 10 at 10pm ET/PT

NEW YORK (October 10, 2014) -- In advance of tonight's season finale of Human Resources, Participant Media's television network Pivot announced today that it has ordered a second season of the critically acclaimed docu-series following New Jersey-based recycling company, TerraCycle and its eclectic employees. The series, which the The New York Times called "spunky" and USAToday.com touted as "refreshing," will return for its second season in 2015 with 10 new episodes.

TerraCycle, one of the fastest-growing green businesses in the world, is a company that has made its mission to eliminate the very idea of waste. Run by Tom Szaky, an idealistic 32-year-old entrepreneur who believes that anything is possible, TerraCycle takes anything and everything that is landfill-bound - from potato chip bags to cigarette butts - and recycles, upcycles, reuses, or otherwise transforms the garbage into something else. The young, offbeat and driven staff at the company's Trenton headquarters is like family -- the core of why Human Resources is about much more than a corporate and social mission. From incredibly awkward situations, to laugh-out-loud moments, to the relatable real-life drama that ensues when a headstrong group of Millennials find themselves in a position to change the world?, nothing is off-limits in this colorful, passionate office.

"We're so pleased with the response to the first season of 'Human Resources' and can't wait to see what TerraCycle has in store for us in season two. The series is the perfect demonstration of Pivot's mission to serve up entertaining originals that organically spark a conversation about ways to affect positive social change," said Belisa Balaban, EVP, Original Programming.

Inspired by the series, Pivot and TerraCycle joined forces with Recycle Across America (RAA) to roll out Recycle Right! to promote the importance and impact that correct recycling has on individuals and businesses, including the increase in the amount of quality raw recycled materials available to be used by manufacturers looking to lessen their environmental footprint. The Recycle Right! campaign also encourages the adoption of standardized labels, which have shown to increase recycling levels by more than 50 percent.

The Recycle Right! campaign has already achieved its goal of doubling the amount of labels in circulation to help RAA achieve a goal of one million standardized labels in use. The Recycle Right! campaign will continue through season two of Human Resources.

Human Resources is a Pivot Original Series in association with Left/Right. Jeff Skoll and Christy Spitzer will serve as executive producers for Pivot. Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, and Anneka Jones serve as executive producers for Left/Right.

About TerraCycle

TerraCycle is the world's leader in the collection and repurposing of hard-to-recycle post-consumer waste, from used chip bags to cigarette butts, by using innovative processes to recycle consumer packaging waste that would otherwise be destined for landfills.

The collected material is reused, upcycled or recycled into many different products.
