You are a production company – such as a fashion brand or recycled plastic bottle designer – with sustainable goods production as your goal. Maybe you are a new eco brand that’s just starting out, or perhaps you’ve been in business for a while and you’ve decided you want to make your supply chain more sustainable by sourcing greener raw materials. Either way, the problem you are currently faced with is how to find a supplier to provide your manufacturing operations with sustainably sourced raw materials. Sounds like you? In this article, we will show you the easiest way to find sustainable material suppliers in 2021.
Hundreds of thousands of companies around the world deal with raw or used materials in some way or another as part of their daily operations; whether they are handling the sourcing and input of (raw) materials, the management or trade of waste and residuals, or anything in between. As such, the opportunities for connection, transaction, collaboration, and partnerships are endless. The opportunities are there, the challenge is simply finding the right company to suit your needs.
The circular economy, in which resources are reused and very little goes to waste, is often talked about in relation to its environmental impact. And while it is certainly true that we need to shift towards a reduce-reuse-recycle economic model to prevent environmental collapse, the circular economy also has incredible business and economic potential. This is exactly why we established the Circular Industry Network: to provide companies with a way to turn the (raw) materials-based circular economy into a business opportunity, network and collaborate with other businesses, and keep up to date with new circular economy opportunities.
