A “circular economy” aims to ensure that products and packaging never become trash. The foundations of circularity are seen in nature where all things are regenerative, and nothing is wasted.

When materials are designed for an extended and regenerated lifecycle, this circularity can apply to man-made materials and products as well. Ultimately, a circular economy extends our planet’s natural resources and protects land and oceans from the negative impacts of material disposal. We encourage supplier innovation in product and packaging design, material selection and manufacturing, as well as striving to produce products that have positive environmental impact during use.
