CABA and Save That Stuff Co-Host Discussion About the Circular Economy




Join Climate Action Business Association and Save That Stuff from 6 to 8 p.m., October 19, at the Old Church West, in Boston, for a panel discussion about emerging drivers and opportunities for entrepreneurs working to make wealth from waste. The circular economy is an emerging economic model that promotes innovation and creative business models for advancing zero waste practices and products. Hear from panelists about their successes, challenges and future business opportunities in the circular economy.

Panelists include Gavin Bodkin, co-owner and COO of Circular Blu, an award-winning Boston-based startup that re-purposes hospital plastics into sustainable products; Joel Dashnaw, a territory manager for Save That Stuff, a Boston- based resource management company enabling more than 3,000 New England businesses and institutions to safely and efficiently get rid of paper recyclables and a wide variety of other recoverable scrap materials otherwise destined for the dumpster; and John Lively, director of Environment and Materials at Preserve, a Waltham-based certified B Corporation that is the leading maker of performance-driven and stylish, 100 percent recycled household products.

This event is part of CABA’s Local Emerging Market Series in which it focuses on specific industries to encourage dialogue within the local industry. Over the past five years, Massachusetts has become the national incubator for innovative business solutions to climate change. CABA has developed a free series of reports, Local Emerging Market Reports (LEMR), to offer a spotlight on what they see as further opportunities for leadership in the transition to a carbon-free economy.

Cost: $15. Location: The Old West Church, 131 Cambridge St., Boston. For tickets, visit bit.ly/2wzT8O5.
