People’s lottery likes circular ideas

UK players of the People’s Postcode Lottery are making a big contribution to the growth of the circular economy.

The community-inspired lottery platform, which supports good causes, has distributed over £260 million to 400 projects in the UK and internationally. And it has now awarded £400,000 to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, one of the leading initiatives working to accelerate the shift to a circular economy, where a take-make-dispose system is replaced by sustainable practices and materials.

“Support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery has been instrumental to our work to help redesign global plastics systems – thus keeping plastics in the economy and out of the ocean. I am delighted that continued support through this new award will help the Foundation to expand its programmes across education, research and communications, to create a shift towards a circular economy, one that can work in the long term,” said Dame Ellen MacArthur, the charity’s founder.
