Seattle Made summer pop-up with EnviroStars
Sustainable Packaging 101: Food and Beverage Edition Feb. 2019
Seattle Made partnered with Modern Species, a sustainable branding and package design agency, to help inform local businesses on upstream decisions (like ethical sourcing, materials, and manufacturing), the use-case considerations (like performance, lifespan, and cost), and the downstream consequences (like consumer behavior, disposal, and recovery) of food service containers and retail food packaging. This event sparked many conversations and helped shed light on some of the challenges and solutions to reducing waste through conscious business choices.
A Circular Economy aims to redefine the way we live, work, and do business. It changes our extractive “take, use, and throw away” model, to a more environmentally and socially regenerative one.
Seattle Good Business Network works to build a more ‘circular Seattle’ by helping to de-silo community stakeholders and organizations by making connections where they matter, and closing the loops.

Holiday Pop Up Market | Upcycler's Edition
Seattle Made partners with Blanton Turner to host a Nov/Dec holiday pop up at the Broadway Market to promote sustainable Seattle Made businesses, and the diversion of materials from the waste stream, during a season of over 25% increase in waste production in the US (source). Seattle Recreative actively engages market-goers to wrap gifts, and build tree ornaments from once-discarded, upcycled materials.
