Thor Retzlaff BA ’18

  • 06/28/2019

    Thor Retzlaff BA ’18, entrepreneur and cofounder of Intrepid, seeks to solve problems all over the world. One of these problems involves human waste disposal in high-altitude areas, such as the base camp of Mount Everest. At high altitudes, waste does not decompose, and its accumulation has begun to cause severe environmental issues on Everest and many other high-altitude areas. Retzlaff and his colleagues hope to address this with their nonprofit Do Good Shit (DGS), which is currently seeking funding. Starting in Torres del Paine, Patagonia, DGS hopes to install lasting solutions to preserve the most beautiful places in the world.
