In the Loop – A Circularity-driven Popup Community Event

Want to be In the Loop? Join us for sustainable food and drink, workshops, and unique popup markets!

What is “In the Loop”?

In the Loop is a circularity-driven popup community hosted FabCafe in partnership with Ekolokal.

In the Loop is a place for creatives, startups, and companies from around the world to try out new things and make connections around a shared consciousness and passion for circular design and sustainability-driven ideas, products and services.

Through the In the Loop community, we aim to increase meaningful collaboration, experiment boldly with new materials, methods, and ideas, and engage deeply with local and global sustainability-inspired creatives, startups, and companies.

Why “In the Loop”?

“In the Loop” has two meanings:

First, “loop” is a reference to circular economy which aims to replace the linear create-use-throw away lifecycle in favor of a circular system where materials are reused, products are upcycled and waste is designed out.

Second, “In the Loop” can also mean “to be in the know”.

Together as a community, members aspire towards gaining a high level of consciousness and shared knowledge around circular design and sustainability. This feeling of inclusion and shared consciousness aims to encourage a deeper and meaningful connection among community members.
