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.

Join us.

Circle Compost

Established in 2016, Circle Compost is a woman-owned company whose mission is to prevent food scraps and other organic materials from being landfilled by turning them into compost that is used in a variety of urban farm and garden applications. They provide Philadelphia residents and businesses with a simple, local alternative to throwing these organic materials away, with a goal to change people’s perception of the value of organic waste. Circle Compost became a founding member to support Circular Philadelphia’s work to advocate for a circular economy and create real change.
