Circular DS (Circular Design Synergy) transforms linear supply chains to be consumer centric, circular, transparent and start at the end. Confirming to your customers that the product they buy ends up right back at the beginning, whether that is a regenerative material, adding valuable nutrients to the soil, or industrial processing, replacing the need for new material mining and sourcing.

Led by Dr Lynn Wilson, our vision is a thriving economy that is consumer centric, transparent, forward thinking and puts planetary boundaries first.
