The first Circle Awards are being launched this week, with entries opening on Thursday for those making an impact in the circular economy movement in Australia and New Zealand.
The awards were established by The World’s Most Rubbish (TWMR), in partnership with NSW Circular, The Bravery, and Urban List.
A statement from the organisers defines CE approaches as as based on a “regenerative” rather than a “take-make-waste” linear model.
The awards aim to celebrate products and services adopting circular practices and raise awareness of such options.
“The Circle Awards showcases tangible examples of circularity in action, demonstrating to people that we can consume more consciously without compromising on quality, cost or experience,” said Nick Hoskin, Co-Founder of TWMR and The Circle Awards, in the release.
“In fact, circular design thinking is behind some of the most interesting products and services on the market as a driving force for innovation. The result can be a far superior experience because every aspect in the process has been carefully considered to deliver the best possible outcome.”
The awards are free to enter. Entries will be open from this Thursday until May 14, with award winners named on June 14.
Award categories are:
- Food & Drink
