A Problem or Opportunity?

We asked ourselves: How can we integrate sustainable consumption into our regular, everyday activities and lifestyle?

The solution was quite simple.  Create an ecosystem where one can reduce waste, reuse preloved items, recycle or repurpose to create something new.

And so our staples of consumables and waste inspired StapleStack – An Ecosystem to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle … and Repurpose!

The StapleStack Philosophy

The circular-economy way of thinking starts in our homes.  It starts with being mindful.  Reconceptualizing what is waste. Rather than the linear model of take-use-dispose, the StapleStack circular economy model promotes how we can reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose what we use every day.   Everything at StapleStack forms part of the circle of resources and energy, similar to how it works in the natural world.

Think about the toys, furniture, clothes, decorative items and electronic devices that would normally end up in the garbage.  By choosing to gift, sell, repair, convert or refine, old items can be given new life, thereby maximizing its functionality and the product life cycle.  Circular economy within our homes!
