The Ellen MacArthur Foundation  (EMF) has already built a very large body of companies, governments and researchers interested in closing-the-loop and saving resources.

Ms. MacArthur remembers, “My boat was my world, I was constantly aware of its supplies’ limits and when I stepped back ashore, I began to see that our world was not any different. I had become acutely aware of the true meaning of the word ‘finite’, and when I applied it to resources in the global economy, I realised there were some big challenges ahead.”  

The world is running out of raw materials.  
We need to capture and re-use our waste.



The foundation released this fun, three-minute animation on the Circular Economy model back in 2011. The video has been watched thousands and thousands of times. It was watched 80,000 times in its first week. It remains YouTube’s most viewed video on the circular economy.
