Intro to Reloop
Reloop is an international non-profit association registered in Brussels. Reloop is governed by the law of 27 June, 1921 on non-profit associations, international non-profit associations and foundations (Title 3), as amended by the law of May 2002.
Reloop’s vision is a world where resources remain resources and where they create jobs in a circular economy. A world where we prioritize waste prevention, advocate reuse, and promote closed-loop recycling, while incineration, landfill, and littering are minimized and ultimately eliminated.
To achieve the organization’s vision, Reloop will promote the overriding benefits of a circular economy. Through a combination of prevention and reuse, as well as high quality and quantity recycling, we shall strengthen the viability of this economic model by assigning value to resources through deposits and related economic incentives
Reloop has produced a variety of resources and materials on issues relating to circular economy, including videos and policy papers.
