Megan Takeda-Tully

Founder & CEO, Suppli

Replacing single-use plastics with a circular economy solution could reduce Canadian GHG emissions by 25%, generate savings of $200 billion per year, and create 700,000 additional jobs by 2040. Dumbfounded by the waste of ordering in, Megan founded her company to embrace a circular economy model, eliminating single-use plastics by providing a reusable takeout container service (one the Clean50 is leveraging for our Summits 10 and 11). However, changing behaviour within the food industry is very complex, as the culture in the takeaway food model centers around being disposable. In the first ten months of operations, Suppli has 1900+ users, processed 2700+ orders, and has saved 8000+ single-use takeout containers from landfills. As communities start announcing bans on single-use plastics, it’s exciting to see the circular model Megan has pioneered into a successful business model for what comes next – and that she hopes to replicate elsewhere. Next up – global domination!
