This video is the second in a series we think explains the circular economy well.
The Ellen Macarthur Foundation is a charity in the UK dedicated to promoting a global transition towards a circular economy. To help explain what that means, they produced three short videos on the subject. The video here is the second in the series, and we highly recommend you check them all out.
The Circular Economy is a rethinking of the way the world operates by moving away from the consumption of resources and towards systems that keep those resources in use in the loop (or circle). This by its very nature reduces, if not eliminates, waste.
We at The Bower have been big proponents of circular economy ideals for many years, and feel that reuse and repair are essential aspects of that system, which should not be ignored.
