Now is the most exciting time to be an innovator.

Today, in industries like fashion and plastics packaging, products and systems are designed in such a way that more than 80% of material flows are destined for landfill, incineration or leaked into natural environments. Once things are designed, it’s hard to reverse: “We can’t unscramble an omelette”

With circular design, we can prevent the creation of waste and pollution right at the start.


We’ve lined up a number of activities to help you understand, define, make, and release circular innovations. Dive in wherever makes most sense for you and your team.
Don’t worry about getting it all right on your first go. The more you prototype and learn, the greater your positive impact on the system.
