2021 NETWORK MEMBERS

Plant Chicago’s Circular Economy Leaders Network brings Chicago-area small businesses together to cultivate local circular economies. A local circular economy is one that regenerates natural ecosystems, minimizes waste, and ensures that economic and social benefits are distributed equitably. 

 

Any small business (20 employees and under) based in the Chicago area and interested in implementing circular economy practices is welcome to join. Potential members include established small businesses, early-stage entrepreneurs, home-based businesses, and independent contractors. 

 

Interested in joining the network? Applications are currently closed, but keep an eye out here for future updates!

WHAT IS A LOCAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY?

A local circular economy is a collaborative practice sustained by the local circulation of materials, nutrients, knowledge, and economic value. Values of equity, transparency, diversity, and inclusion define its success.

In a local circular economy, business activities should regenerate natural ecosystems, minimize waste, and strive to make sure that economic and social benefits are distributed equitably.
