eBay | Circular Economy

Giving products the chance to have many lives and benefit many people.

eBay was driving a circular economy long before most people even knew what it meant. Our first transaction was a broken laser pointer. Instead of sitting unused, it was sold to someone who wanted to give it new life.

More than our history, the circular economy is our future. One where buyers become sellers, giving every item renewed life and value. We work closely with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and, as members of CE100, we collaborate with other leading companies and engage our eBay community to create a more sustainable economy that’s better for our planet.
