What is the circular economy?

The circular economy is a new approach to reduce the pressures we are putting on the environment.

Instead of a linear economy, where we take-make-waste, the circular economy aims to extend the life of products and materials we use.‍

The circular economy focuses on designing out of waste, keeping products and materials in use, and helping to restore natural ecosystems.

By looking beyond the current take-make-waste model, we can move toward a renewable and regenerative model that is designed with the environment in mind.

How zenko helps you be part of the circular economy

‍Our missionΒ at zenko is to protect our planet by helping workplaces be more sustainable everyday.

This means being thoughtful about the things we use everyday.

This means not simply buying something just because it's cheap.

This means digging deeper and asking two simple, but important, questions:

  1. What is it made from?, and
  2. Where does it end up?
