Circular Communities Scotland is proud to celebrate the work of our members from across Scotland.
As we prepare for our upcoming in-person member forums in Glasgow and Edinburgh, we want to take a moment to recognise the amazing work being done by our members in these communities.
Glasgow and Edinburgh are both vibrant cities boasting an amazing array of circular charities and social enterprises to get involved with. Our members in Glasgow and Edinburgh represent a diverse range of organisations and together, they are helping to create a more sustainable and resilient future for Scotland.
We are honoured to be a part of this important work!
