Founding Member Spotlight
ECHO Systems is a Philadelphia member-based network of businesses, organizations, and community members intent upon—through its actions—eliminating single-use waste. They stop trash where it starts by designing and delivering local reusable infrastructure to replace single-use plastics with reusables in food service, grocery and hospitality.
They consult, design and provide a pathway for businesses in Philadelphia and the tri-state region to move away from supporting wasteful, fossil fuel driven economies by embedding reuse models in their operations. They also manage those reuse models by delivering and circulating reusables, and these models drastically reduce the detritus that is traditionally generated in food distribution. They are researchers, architects, systems designers and service providers all in one.
Why did you become a founding member?
Because we love Circular Philadelphia and its mission.
What does a circular economy mean to you?
It means the end of pointless waste at the expense of this planet and her people. It means that we use resources respectfully and do not impose harm to this planet. Basically it’s reuse, re-share, repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing, recycle and re-circulate.
What advice would you give to someone to help move the Circular Economy forward?
Support Circular Philadelphia and the local businesses which provide options for a new climate conscious world.
