While countries around the world discuss and transition to a “circular economy,” the concept is relatively new to the United States. The National Stewardship Action Council (NSAC) was created to push the U.S. in the direction of a circular economy, which is a generic term for an industrial economy that is, by design or intention, restorative and in which material flows are of two types, biological nutrients, designed to reenter the biosphere safely, and technical nutrients, which are designed to circulate at high quality without entering the biosphere. In short, a closed loop system where materials are all reused and recycled indefinitely.
