Where instead of throwing things away, we locally recycled those materials into fresh raw materials to power a thriving regional manufacturing economy.

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.

Circular economies don’t happen on their own.

They happen when individual actions meet collective impact, driving the systemic change that future generations so richly deserve.

They take all of us.

Which is why we’re combining our voices and actions to create a brighter, more responsible and more sustainable future than any one of us could achieve alone.

Introducing #CircleUp, a new campaign to promote the circular economy and inspire collective action towards greater circularity.
