As a company who prides itself on being sustainable, it is very important to us that we apply the principles of sustainability to every aspect of our business from packaging to products and work toward creating a company built around the goal of a circular economy.1
Most scholars describe circular economy by referring to the 3Rs:
Reducing materials need and waste
Reusing products and product parts and
A circular economy can be defined as:
“A regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimized by slowing, closing, and narrowing energy and material loops; this can be achieved through long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, refurbishing, recycling, and upcycling” 2
To help us achieve this goal, we are proud to partner with TerraCycle to help us responsibly manage the end of life options of our products.
To date, over 80 million people are collecting in 21 countries and have collected billions of pieces of waste, raising over 21 million dollars for charities around the world.
Materials can often be used to recreate other products such as bags, pencil cases, benches, picnic tables, signs and even clothes in some cases.
