We implement practical solutions based on Circular Economy values across 24 countries in the Asian region.
The Asian Plastics & Packaging Agreement
We believe every country in the world needs to formulate their own plastics and packaging agreement in order to oversee the development of a sustainable and circular packaging industry. As there are 249 countries in the world that’s a lot of agreements. The Asian Plastics & Packaging Agreement is a template for all emerging markets to use. Although the managing organisation’s will have their own methods and ideals as to the implementation, the one single thing we must all agree on are targets and a labeling system system that works across regions.
Our targets are not ambitious. Our targets are completely achievable. It’s just going to take a lot of work and effort from everyone: government, industry and consumers. All of us at Circular Economy Asia intend to commit to accomplishing these goals by 2050.

We have launched our newspaper called ‘Circular Asia News Beat‘. It covers news on the Circular Economy, sustainability, recycling, fashion, science, technology and so much more. This is the best daily update on the Circular Economy in the world!
October is for 31 Fact Sheets – #CircularOctober
This month we celebrate the first anniversary of #CircularOctober and this month we revisit the 31 Fact Sheets that kick started this idea. We had hoped to be launching our #CircularOctober website, so not everything has turned out exactly as we planned. You know what? That’s completely OK. Like John Lennon once famously said “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
This month’s themes are:
Every day we post interesting and fun information on some aspect on the monthly themes on our social media sites: LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook (see our Facebook community here). We are also building significant resources around each of the #CircularOctober themes, just visit #CircularOctober Resources.
