THE CIRCUL'R FAMILY
We are a group of French people who aims to raise awareness about circular economy and find solutions to create a better world.
How did it all start?
Jules Coignard and Raphaël Masvigner met in Mexico in 2013 while they were working for Airbus. Both passionate about the environment, they quit their job one year later to do the first circular economy world tour. The idea was to prove that people have all the solutions to live in a sustainable way without damaging the environment. After traveling for 17 months in 22 countries and meeting with 150 local activists about circular economy, Jules and Raphaël came back to France to launch the Circul’R startup in 2017. They aim to build the first global network of circular economy startups to accelerate the transition from a linear (take-make-dispose) to a circular economy model which is respectful of the people and the planet. In 2019, the Circul'R family has grown to be a 27 person team to continue to impact the world.
Why we believe in circular economy ?
Circular economy simply rethinks the way we do things. It invites people to use natural resources in a smart way to no longer produce waste. Nature is a perfect circular economy model because nothing is lost, and everything is transformed to create new values for the natural ecosystem.
Significant improvements can be achieved quickly through a circular economy because it creates positive impacts on both the environment and the economy. We firmly believe that it is the essential economic model we need because it will transition toward a sustainable economy respectful of the people and the planet. It will be a win-win situation.
