Impact Zero, a Toronto-based non-profit, is launching its Circular Marketplace. The circular business directory was partially funded through The Regional Municipality of York's Circular Economy Initiatives Fund and showcases 100+ small online and brick-and-mortar businesses, searchable by product.
Participating businesses are required to disclose high-level sustainability information for customers to understand the product-specific, operational sustainability and social impacts of the business.
“The Circular Marketplace will not only make it easy for consumers to support small businesses but also help promote the financial growth of Canadian communities while building a new green economy. This type of circular economic development plays a pivotal role in broader sustainable economic development,” said Erin Andrews of ImpactZero Corp.
