Basic Science Makes Smart Business with Tom Kelly, Kelly Green Board

Nov 6, 2023

The only constant in life is change! What would you do if your product or service was made obsolete by new technology? Throw in the towel or take a deep look at the business to pull together an entirely new business idea? 


On this episode, Ari talks to Tom Kelly, Owner of 2001 Company and Kelly Green Products about his roof design that vacuum seals onto a building. Then they discuss the new board (like plywood) that Kelly Green Board is manufacturing out of recycled and unused plastics that is changing the face of roof (and other) construction. 

At a time when we are running out of space for trash, and need to find alternative uses for our 'single-use' plastics, sustainable and recycled products are a vital part of our economy.
