Building a More Sustainable Economy in Michigan: Priority Actions for Supporting an Extended Producer and Circular Economy, June 2020

This paper outlines our process of collaboration and consensus building around ways to advance the circular economy in Michigan. This text serves not only as a launching point for the circular economy and the related practice of extended producer responsibility initiatives in the state, but as a blueprint for knowledge networking. Programs that center around product take-back, reusable packing, and modular and repairable design have heightened interest among those surveyed in this work and may serve as primary avenues for greater extended producer responsibility and circular economy proposals.
