Circular Design Lab
Chris Oestereich is a circular economy leader and a faculty member at Thammasat University’s School of Global Studies. He formerly led zero waste programs for Albertsons and SuperValue, a nation-wide network of US grocery chains that diverted or avoid over 90% of the waste from hundreds of stores and distribution centers. Those programs created millions of dollars in benefits in reduced waste hauling costs and increased recycling revenues, while providing meals to hungry people and greatly reducing the firm’s impact on the planet.
Chris is currently launching Full Circle Filament, a social enterprise that will work directly with informal waste collectors to source waste plastic for high-quality 3D printing filament, and he’s a co-founder of the Circular Design Lab, a citizen-driven project focused on prototyping and delivering solutions to humanity's big challenges.
Chris will be bringing his extensive experience in systems design and circularity models to our Good Circularity workshop as moderator as well as being Lead Programme Designer for our Innovation Lab sponsored by ecostore.
