We are MaterialTrader, the Circular Industry Network. We consist of an online trading platform for circular materials and related services. Next to our Marketplace, we offer a fast growing Business Directory and Community dedicated to a discussion of all things circular.
Here at MaterialTrader we adamantly believe that circularity is the new economy. As our natural resources run low yet consumption continues to rise, the only way we can stay afloat in the following decades is by completely reinventing the way we consume – stepping away from a linear take-make-waste economy towards a circular recycle-consume-reuse economy. Naturally businesses dealing in materials, like us, are key players in this circle. Thus, besides being a Marketplace, MaterialTrader wants to contribute to the cause by inviting you to join our community for sharing the circular ideology and bringing others on board the path to circularity.
In our news section we will be writing about the latest sustainability news, how we can become more circular in our practices, and pretty much anything we find interesting in the circularity world. But this shouldn’t be a one-way conversation, we want to hear from you too! Think of the Circular Industry Network as a platform for all members – us included – to learn, discuss, and share knowledge about circularity with each other, in hopes that more businesses begin to not only think circular, but also incorporate it into their daily practices. We hope you join us, and you will be hearing more from us soon!
Once again a warm welcome from us at MaterialTrader,
Bas Hekman, CEO
