Please join The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and OpenIDEO in congratulating the 16 winners of the Circular Design Challenge! These teams will share a total prize pool of $1,000,000, funded by Wendy Schmidt, lead philanthropic funder of the New Plastics Economy Initiative, and USAID.
Please see our Top Ideas Packet for an overview of the 6 recipients of the Future of Plastics Award, as well as the 10 recipients of the Ideator’s Award.
Thank you to everyone who shared an Idea, gave feedback, or encouragement during the Challenge. And remember that this is only the beginning of a journey, we need more of your collective efforts in order to build a plastics economy that works.
