There are companies whose sole purpose is to profit, and then there are companies that set out to change the world. Upcycled tote bags may be what Circular Blu is currently known for, but their vision goes far beyond that…to create a circular economy that works, while at the same time putting disadvantaged and underserved people to work. That is why, effective immediately, Circular Blu is very proud to announce that a portion of all proceeds from the sales of our tote bags will be donated to Work Without Limits to support their mission of advancing the careers of people with disabilities. Jonathan Flanders, Circular Blu Co-Owner and Chief Innovation Officer states, “It is really important that people vote with their dollars by making socially and environmentally beneficial consumer decisions. Aligning our mission with that of Work Without Limits enables us to expand and provide increasingly larger support for the amazing work they do."
