ABOUT
We are GreenRee and we love Upcycling! Creating the best upcycling ideas is what we do.WHY? Because Upcycling is a great way to reuse materials and reduce our footprint.
GreenRee collects old newspaper, old banners etc. and convert them to utilitarian items like steady paper bags, fruit baskets, Carry bags, and much more. Visit our website to see the wide range of upcycled products we have. Visit our website to see the wide range of upcycled products we have.

DID YOU KNOW?
It takes around 200 litres of water to recycle bundle of 1 month of daily newspaper and moreover waste from recycling industries goes to lakes and rivers, the cost of spoiling these natural resources comes as increase in cost of living say cost of water for example.
So, what is the actual solution?
Upcycling is the process where we take already manufactured products and convert them to serve us for other purposes. For example, we can take newspapers and create carry bags out of them at costs that rival plastic bags. These are not just allowing the usage of materials with a better purpose but also reducing our dependency on plastics.
Over the past quarter-century, little has changed business, or the global economy, more than the rise of supply chains as the core organizing principle for production and distribution of everyday products. It is likely that in the next 25 years, fundamental changes in consumer expectations, natural resource constraints, and technology advances will remake every aspect of business, not least for supply chain models.
How Circular economy comes into play?
One approach for staying ahead of these changes is circular economy. The circular economy holds the potential to revolutionize the production model the world relies upon. This is no small thing: CDP, for example, estimates that 50 percent of the average company’s carbon emissions are embedded in its supply chain. What then, are some examples of what can—and should—change?

CORE
STEPS
can lead to circular supply chain models that drive
sustainability progress.
#1
The first step requires a change in thinking. Circular economy principles envision a departure from the traditional “take-make-dispose” model in favor of a system that radically reduces—or eliminates—waste. As is so often the case, it is as much the “software” of our thinking as the “hardware” of our practices that drives or prevents change.
#2
Second, circular supply chains require changes in product design. Everything from automobile components to athletic footwear can be re-imagined to ensure that components have fewer toxic elements and can be easily reused or recycled.
#3
Third, circular supply chains require radical collaboration. Too often, production capacity is used inefficiently. Competitors share facilities but, in many cases, fail to coordinate production, resulting in excess or strained capacity. Companies are increasingly looking to manage their costs, and connected machines drive greater efficiencies. The obvious competitive issues that prevent optimizing capacity may be a luxury that companies can no longer afford.
#4
Finally, the reverse cycle to reclaim materials is a fundamental element of the circular production model. The creation of reverse logistics not only reduces or eliminates waste, but also brings economic opportunities from the repurposing of scarce natural resources, which can generate new enterprises, as well as additional employment for people populating these efforts.
Circular economy principles have always made sense in terms of wise use of natural resources, and this remains true, now more than ever. And with increasing imperatives to reduce waste, more openness for collaboration among buyers, and growing ambition regarding companies’ climate pledges, the time is right to use circular economy principles to redefine supply chains for the next quarter-century.
