Recycling is key in moving toward a circular economy, where valuable materials are allowed to live again and again.
A move to a circular economy is all about keeping materials at their highest value for as long as possible.
Currently we operate in a linear economy, where the majority of our resources are taken, used, and then disposed of, having only one valuable life.
And while many of us understand the benefits of recycling, this is only one piece of the puzzle.
In order to truly contribute to a circular economy, recycled content must have an end market, or else it doesn’t have a value, and there is no incentive to recycle products.
In order to create this end market – there must be demand.
