Circular Economy Initiatives Map

Yorkshire and the Humber is home to nearly 800 circular economy community initiatives, from repair cafes and food banks to libraries of stuff and much more.

In 2022, initiatives were mapped across five categories:

  • Food
  • Textiles
  • Furniture
  • Digital and electronics
  • Underutilised goods

You can browse these initiatives in our interactive map (link opens in new page). This map has been made freely available for everyone, with a view to scale up circular economy in our region.

Use the map to find initiatives near and far, to find out about their activities, make use of their products and services, and to make contact and learn from each other when launching new initiatives.
