The circular economy is a natural extension of Cisco’s own business transformation. As a company, we are moving from product upgrade cycles to recurring cloud computing and a software-subscription model. With this same mindset, we aim to harness technology to limit the unintended consequences of one-way consumption.
Cisco is accelerating the adoption of circularity with the goal of decoupling business growth from the consumption of finite resources, designing waste out of the system, and transitioning to renewable energy.
It’s a first for Valvert, our Belgian natural mineral water, and a European first for Nestlé Waters. A sustainable water in a more sustainable bottle: Valvert launches today its new bottle made entirely from recycled plastic (rPET). This innovation is one of the tangible proofs of Nestlé's worldwide commitment to make its packaging 100% reusable or recyclable by 2025. It is another important step in Nestlé Waters’ approach to tackling packaging waste and protecting water resources.
HPRC got a nice shout-out in a recent Packaging Digest piece about Bella the Bride, a traveling display jointly put on by DuPont and Beacon Converters that features a wedding gown made of discarded Tyvek meant to encourage conversations about reuse of healthcare plastics. The gown was created by artist and environmental educator Nancy Judd.
