A circular economy is built on extending the lifecycle of materials and resources that have already served their original intended purpose. By reusing and recycling materials over and over again, nothing becomes waste. The foundation of such a system centers on stewardship: keeping materials out of landfills and toxins out of the air, and using only what we need as efficiently as we can. These sustainable innovations and practices propel the circular economy.

In this series sponsored by Sustana, a leader in fiber and paper products with deep experience in sustainable innovation through its Sustana Fiber and Rolland Paper brands, we’ll take a closer look at the solutions businesses can employ to help build the circular economy of the future.
