About this Episode

If you're in the NYC area, you may have already seen Shien-Ru Tsao's image plastered on tall advertisements from the NYC Mayor's Office of Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise Campaign. In fact, there's one right in the Staten Island Ferry terminal.

Shien-Ru grew up in a family of entrepreneuers. Her parents, living just outside the Chicago, IL area, owned their own restaurant and still do to this day. When Shien-Ru's family restaurant joined a popular meal service called Grubhub, Shien-Ru was inspired by all of the waste created to start her own business designing packaging that was biodegradable.

In this conversation, Shien-Ru tells us aout how she build her business, Commit to Green, with purpose and also givs her advice on pursuing a meaningful career.
