Our Vision: A connected and supportive community of stakeholders working collaboratively to develop a circular economy in the St. Louis region.
Our Mission: CircularSTL is a coalition of organizations working to design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems to protect our public health, communities, and environment. We complete this mission through community engagement, network capacity building, education, and resource sharing.
