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.

Circular Philadelphia Member Rutabaga Toy Library


Rutabaga Toy Library

Rutabaga Toy Library offers a zero-waste solution for eco-conscious families by offering toy-sharing and a zero-waste party space for kids’ birthday celebrations. Rutabaga believes that sharing instead of buying new is not only good for the environment, it also helps us build strong communities.

They became a member of Circular Philadelphia because CP’s work dovetails perfectly with Rutabaga Toy Library’s core mission. Their primary gig? Keeping toys out of landfills and challenging the production of disposable toys. Being part of Circular Philadelphia encourages Rutabaga Toy Library to actively contribute to a more sustainable and circular economy.
