The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Circular Economy Philosophy
A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design, and aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.
A concept that distinguishes between technical and biological cycles,
the circular economy is a continuous, positive development cycle.
It preserves and enhances natural capital, optimizes resource yields,
and minimizes system risks by managing finite stocks and renewable
flows. A circular economy works effectively at every scale.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy Initiative
The New Plastics Economy is an ambitious, 3 year initiative
to build momentum towards a plastics system that "keeps
the molecule in play." Applying the principles of the circular
economy, it brings together key stakeholders to rethink and
redesign the future of plastics, starting with packaging.
The US EPA Sustainable Materials Management Strategy
Sustainable materials management (SMM) is a systemic approach
to using and reusing materials more productively over their entire
life cycles. It represents a change in how our society thinks about
the use of natural resources and environmental protection. By
looking at a product's entire life cycle, we can find new ways
to reduce environmental impacts, conserve resources and reduce costs.
The USDA BioPreferred Program
Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the goal
of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the use of biobased
products. The increased development, purchase, and use of
biobased products reduces our nation's reliance on petroleum,
increases the use of renewable agricultural resources, and
contributes to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.
