Paradigm Labs, a division of the Paradigm Project, supports clean energy, circular economy, and socio-economic business model development.


Paradigm One is a closed-loop Circular Economy business model designed to help foodservice companies and customers reduce the negative impacts of single-use disposable products (whether technically recyclable, compostable, biodegradable, or not) on our communities, cultural hubs, and the environment.

Paradigm Labs ran a micropilot in the fall of 2020 to test the concept and then spun-off Paradigm One as an independent entity (Paradigm One Benefit LLC).


The company launched its commercial pilot in March 2021 and is currently building a network of restaurants and customers across the Washington Metro Area that are committed to zero waste and a sustainable future.


Full commercial launch is targeted for Fall 2021.
