Connecting like minded businesses and people to catalyse the circular economy in the Barwon South West

Catalysing and collaborating towards circular

Regional Innovation for a Circular Economy (RICE) is leading the transition to a thriving regional circular economy, by being a catalyst for innovation and a concierge to connect relevant organisations.

We are the leading regional circular network in Victoria, with connections through business, government and community.

We believe the time for change is now.

What is the Circular Economy?

The circular economy is a way to design, make and use things within the planet’s limits. By designing out waste and for longer life, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural assets, resources are kept in use for as long as possible. We make more with less.
