Join the City of Austin’s Circular Economy Program for a new, virtual networking series, Circular Meet-Ups. Happening the first Tuesday of every other month, Circular Meet-Ups provide an opportunity for local business owners, start-ups and sustainability professionals across all industries to connect and learn more about Austin’s circular economy.

Attend a Circular Meet-Up today:

  • Get an introduction to Austin’s circular economy
  • Hear from innovators and leaders of successful circular businesses in Austin
  • Learn about best ‘circular’ business practices that can benefit you and your company
  • Network with like-minded business leaders and entrepreneurs

The next Circular Meet-Up is on Tuesday, December 1, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Register here. During this meet-up, you’ll join three local business leaders for a discussion on Austin’s circular future — check them out below:

Samantha Snabes, Co-founder, re:3D “At re:3D we’ve modified the world’s largest, affordable, industrial 3D printers to print directly from shredded waste in efforts to enable sustainable manufacturing & new job creation.”

Laura Chavez, Chief Lugging Officer, Junkluggers “The Junkluggers of Austin’s mission is to enhance lives, our community, and the environment by donating, upcycling, recycling, and supporting local charities. These actions help support our ultimate goal of zero waste and keeping as many items out of the landfill as possible.”

Yogesh Sharm, Co-founder and CEO, Trashless “Trashless is a zero-waste, local grocery delivery service that’s making modern, sustainable lifestyles easy and affordable. By eliminating the use of single-use packaging, and focusing on local supply-chains, Trashless is up-ending the traditionally wasteful grocery system.”
