The Circular Economy Working Group seeks to emulate nature by closing the loop of resource use and recycling, where nothing is wasted and everything serves a purpose!   

Join us for our Circular Economy Working Group meetings which are held on the 4th Wednesday of every month.

Thanks to all of you who made it out on a cold night to the DoEE office for our February meeting. We made some great progress on a number of CE projects and ideas. After the upcycle segment of the meeting, one team continued work on a regional CE brewing map.

Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 27th, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Mary Graydon Center at American University, in Room 328.  It is Metro accessible via the American University Shuttle from the Tenlytown AMU Red Line station. 

Please RSVP below if you plan to attend.
