Today, as we celebrate our 7th birthday, we’re excited to share climate solutions media company Pique Action’s micro-documentary of Rheaply.

Topics range from cellular agriculture to carbon capture to wave energy, and feature global companies from Berkeley to Bangalore. Pique Action has amassed more than 7 million views.
In this video, the issue at hand is clear: the current life cycle of assets lacks transparency, traceability, and opportunities for reuse, resulting in massive waste generation and a significant environmental footprint. Our possessions and resources often end up idle in closets, storage units, or landfills, contributing to resource depletion and pollution.
Rheaply’s innovative technology offers a promising solution to address the pressing need for a circular economy, a concept crucial for mitigating the environmental challenges we face today. In a world characterized by a “take-make-waste” mentality, Rheaply stands as a beacon of hope, aiming to transform our linear consumption patterns into a regenerative, sustainable future.
