Waste-Ed's TikTok page has the highest engagement rate among eco channels and peers. With 61 million views in 9 months, our success has been meteoric. Our host Shashi Mostafa was named one of Climate Tracker's 5 Sustainability TikTok Creators You Should Follow, and host Elliott Norris has become a cult favorite by taking on the challenge to test out plant-based food, going plastic-free, and experimenting with homemade zero-wase beauty products.
