Tired of seeing the amount of single use packaging waste created every day? Keen to help tackle one of the biggest environmental issues of our time? Passionate about communications? Believe that business can act as a change for good? Looking for a meaningful job? Looking to join a like-minded team of people? Then this position is for you!

What is Loop?

Loop is a first of its kind circular solution designed to tackle single-use packaging. A zero-waste shopping platform featuring everyday products from household brands, in refillable, durable packaging. Moving brands, retailers and consumers from disposable to reusable.

Loop was launched in May 2019 by TerraCycle, which has been Eliminating the Idea of Waste® since 2001 by recycling the non-recyclable and reducing disposability at its source. Working with many of the world's largest consumer brands (including P&G, Nestlé, Unilever, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Mondēlez,...) as well as smaller ones (Braam, Petits Bidons, La Petite Fabrique Provençale…) and some of the world’s largest retailers (Tesco, Carrefour, Walgreens,...). It is a groundbreaking step towards the end of single-use disposable materials and the beginning of a circular economy for the consumer goods industry. Loop was launched in both France and the US last May, with plans to expand into several new markets including the UK, Germany, Canada and Japan in 2020.
