  • It’s a Wrap! – Circular Economy with Materials In Mind event

    GECA Materials in Mind Showcase 2019
    19 Dec 2019 8:05 pm

    In collaboration with the City of Sydney, we brought an exciting community event – Circular Economy with Materials In Mind, between 14-19th October 2019.

    The event’s purpose was to bring everyone together – business, government and community to share ideas and celebrate sustainable and circular economy solutions. And by the positive feedback received, we were proud to deliver and empower this.

    The 6 day event also celebrated World Ecolabel Day (17 October), which provided people with an opportunity to explore different types of ecolabels and discover how they’re making a positive change.

    The outdoor showcase held at Customs House Square, Sydney featured our Materials In Mind pod, along with displays by other third-party ecolabels and sustainability leaders – Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), ForPurposeCo, Good On You and Terracycle.

    Our pod provided an interactive showcase of beautiful and functional GECA certified building materials and furniture, all inside a uniquely repurposed 20ft used shipping container.

    On 17 October, at the Museum of Sydney (Warrane Theatre), we held a symposium with thought leaders in sustainability, business and government on the current challenges, solutions and initiatives to advance a circular economy.

    We also screened our brand new video ‘Everyone Wins’.  And in case you missed it, you can watch it here.

    We would like to thank all our wonderful, inspiring speakers, stallholders, production partners; KEZU and Sustainable Living Fabrics, the City of Sydney and all of you who attended.

    We hope to see you next time!
