Closing the loop on our linear economy
What if we lived in a world of circularity that transformed our myriad of stuff into valuable resources through reuse?
Today, the linear life of an asset has no visibility, traceability, and very low reuse potential.
We live in a take-make-waste world that generates overwhelming amounts of stuff that often sits idle in our closets, storage units, and landfills.
What is the circular economy?
The circular economy is a holistic solution that recaptures waste to create new resources and products, keeping goods, materials, and services in use for a regenerative future. Ultimately, it’s a transformation of our global systems based on three main principles:
Building a connected circular economy
At Rheaply, we believe there is a fourth principle that truly puts us on the path to a circular economy—connecting our global value chain. Explore the players in our connected circular economy.
What does circularity look like in practice?
Put simply, circularity happens through connections and community. With the right system in place, organizations and municipalities can share materials and resources no longer needed with other departments or the broader community, saving money and resources and avoiding landfill.
Commercial reuse – think supplies and furniture in a typical workplace, factory, lab, university, and beyond – has the opportunity to make a massive impact on our environment and companies’ bottom lines.
What are the benefits of a circular economy?
- Efficiency: Streamline procurement, purchasing, and operations by keeping resources in (re)use
- Sustainability: Reduce consumption of finite resources to make a real impact on carbon emissions, pollution, and climate change
- Equity: Support the economic mobility of marginalized communities to empower systems to change
An estimated 70% of carbon emissions can be abated by transitioning to a circular economy.
