What is the Circular Economy?
A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life. In other words, a circular economy minimizes waste of all kinds.

What talents and skills can you add to the growing circular economy?
Recycling & Repairs
Extending the life of our appliances saves us money, increases our economic freedom.
A true Circular Economy calls for a holistic approach to energy and materials, the complete opposite of the take-make-waste paradigm.
Compact, walkable communities, where the loop from production to consumer and back to reuse/recycling is short, are the ideal place for circularity. Key metrics include not just economic indicators and materials recovery, but ecological indicators too, especially clean air and water, and superior health and wellness of the residents.
The challenges of the future demand new solutions, systems and relationships among people and nature.
