A Circular Economy aims to redefine the way we live, work, and do business. It changes our extractive “take, use, and throw away” model, to a more environmentally and socially regenerative one.

2019 Circular Initiatives
Seattle Good Business Network works to build a more ‘circular Seattle’ by helping to de-silo community stakeholders and organizations by making connections where they matter, and closing the loops.

Holiday Pop up market | upcyclers edition
Seattle Made partners with Blanton Turner to host a Nov/Dec holiday pop up at the Broadway Market to promote sustainable Seattle Made businesses, and the diversion of materials from the waste stream, during a season of over 25% increase in waste production in the US (source). Seattle Recreative actively engages market-goers to wrap gifts, and build tree ornaments from once-discarded, upcycled materials.
