From Rubicon Global.
“While working in China for the Kentucky state government earlier in his career, Morris was shocked by the incredible amount of waste that he saw being produced, and by the lack of an environmentally responsible ways to deal it. Upon his return to the US, he reconnected with Spiegel, whose family had been in the waste and recycling business for more than a century, and questioned if there was a better, more sustainable way to deal with the global waste problem. Together they got to work, Morris maxed out his personal credit cards, and even sold items on eBay to fund initial expenses. They came-up with the name Rubicon, a reference to the idiom “Crossing the Rubicon,” which means to pass a point of no return and refers to Julius Caesar’s army crossing the Rubicon River in 49 BC. With this humble start, but grand ambition, Rubicon was born.
