Where secondhand doesn’t mean second rate, but we develop subscription and reuse systems for our unwanted goods to power an equitable, thriving retail economy that everyone can afford.


Where instead of making the consumer responsible for single use goods and packaging, we pass smart legislation that reduces the amount of waste in our everyday lives.

Where instead of accepting an unsustainable economy, we develop a resilient economy that runs on circular systems to eliminate waste in our consumption and our human potential.

That’s the promise of Circular Philadelphia.
