Jeannette Morath

Founder

“Why should we serve delicious food and drinks in cheap and low-quality packaging that harms our environment?”

Jeannette started her professional life in the hotel and tourism industry in Switzerland and abroad. After her positions as event manager, exhibition planner and in marketing and communication Jeannette started to work for the city of Bern. She consulted companies regarding reusable packaging and was immediately infected by the reusable packaging virus. Jeannette is the founder and CEO of reCIRCLE.  

Nils Spycher

“At reCIRCLE we strive to create a win-win-win situation: Our customers enjoy their meal in high quality packaging, our gastronomy partners save money and together we reduce the impact on the environment by tons of CO2”

Nils studied economics at the University of Bern and holds a master’s degree in climate sciences. He joined the reCIRCLE Team as an administration and sales intern right after finishing his bachelor’s degree. He then became part of our core team working in accounting and logistics and now co-leads projects that revolve around the topic of international expansion.

Jasmin Röösli

“reCIRCLE offers its customers a simple and effective way to enjoy food and drinks on the go while taking care of our precious environment”

Jasmin holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and sustainable development and is working on her master’s in circular innovation and sustainability. She joined reCIRCLE as an intern supporting our administrations and campaigning team and went on to working in the field of customer success management. She now co-leads projects that revolve around the topic of international expansion.

Team denmark

We aim to change customer behavior about reusable packaging and food waste. Denmark is a small country with big green hearts, and the Danes are quick to tap into new initiatives. We hope to inspire and create a movement for better and greener habits.

reCIRCLE Denmark is driven by Kristian, who has a great passion for sustainability which he also works with on a daily basis as structural engineer, where he strives to raise the bar for sustainability within infrastructure projects.

The time is now! The decade of action is upon us. We need to re-evaluate the way we live, think, consume and act. Join us and the rest of the reCIRCLE family in the fight against single-use plastic!

reCIRCLE Denmark is always looking for ways to collaboration in the fight against single use – so please reach out if you got great ideas for collaboration or want to help on this journey.

team estonia

We see reusable packaging as the only attainable and realistic solution to reduce the tragic amount of single-use plastic in the catering industry.

Introducing the reCIRCLE solution in Estonia is like a fresh air to an everlasting problem. The importance of this solution is strongly felt, and quickly sparked positive discussions around the idea. People have started to understand that bioplastic is also not a solution to the problem.

Estonia’s team is a family - two sisters, Katarina (a teacher and blog writer on environmental issues) and Hanna (a masters student in Development Cooperation), with mother Kadrin (experienced HR manager, currently a creative business owner).
Our vision is easy - a single-use packaging free Estonia and people who have solid knowledge about our environment.

Team germany

After tackling single-use waste in Stuttgart as a volunteer initiative, we founded our social startup reCIRCLE Germany in 2019. Since then, we have been working every day to make reusable packaging a part of our everyday lives.

Each German causes 227.5 kg of packaging waste per year and we want to change that. We think sharing is more sustainable than buying. Our politicians have recognized this and are obliging restaurants to offer a reusable alternative from 2023. But our vision goes even further, because we want to completely ban disposable packaging for on-the-go food in Germany’s gastronomy.

TEAM ITALY

We think that reuse is the only reasonable solution to reduce waste and respect the resources of our planet.

In 2019 the Italians produced about 30 million tons of waste, of which 40% is from packaging. This is an average of 499 kg per inhabitant. To manage this waste, we spend more than 10 billion Euro every year.

The association Giacimenti Urbani, which is the initiator of the reCIRCLE system in Italy, works in this field through networking and mapping the subjects that deal with prevention, reuse, repair, reuse and recycling.

The waste disaster caused by our lifestyle is under the eyes of all of us. We believe that reCIRCLE can have a significant impact on this issue and has a happy future ahead.

Team NETHERLANDS

We have to change the way we deal with our resources. Sharing instead of owning is a trend that will become more and more prevalent. I’m not interested in running a project with a limited timeframe, but in establishing a sustainable business model for our future.

My name is Owe Kroeger, I am the head of reCIRCLE Netherlands, based in Rotterdam. I started this adventure in April with two pilot locations, and am now putting a team together to spread the concept of reCIRCLE everywhere in the Netherlands. Sustainability in food packaging is still not a big thing here. But I am sure the people will be open to the idea of sharing & will break with the old habit of wasting instead of reusing resources. I can’t wait to push this project forward!

WHAT MAKES US MOVE

Our vision is a world where takeaway packaging is reusable. A world where you can eat and drink on the go without hesitation and with pleasure, because single-use plastic is replaced by cleanly produced, reusable, recyclable, packaging in a closed-loop system.

HOW WE MOVE TOGETHER

We communicate openly and honestly and behave in a fair, respectful, and appreciative manner towards our team, customers, partners, the public, and the environment.
