What is Circular Economy?
In the world, there are a lot of “waste” such as still available parts and products, bad inventory and not used idle assets in spite of some people asking. The circular economy is a new economic zone that is born by the effective use of resources. This economic zone is very promising in our research, we expect to grow up to the size of USD4.5 trillion in 2030.

JEPLAN,INC. VISION “ Circulate Everthing”

“Circulate Everything” means taking used or unwanted personal belongings and bringing them back to their original state and then selling them as a new product. By doing this JEPLAN,Inc. helps to protect our world by reducing the use of petroleum and energy and this will reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases.

Fundamental to our core ethos is the invitation to consumers to engage with us on this journey in protecting our beautiful planet. We offer consumers the opportunity to satisfy their feeling of – “I want to contribute something to the environment” by combining fun, entertainment and circulation.
