We Are Full of Ideas

Confused about the circular economy? It’s simple. It’s about resource efficiency and resource management because we live in a finite world. 

It starts with how we take or extract the natural resources, then design, manufacture and dispose of the products we buy and the services we use. We have the technology, the knowledge and capability to recover the resources we consume. Once recovered several options are available – any one of the Circular Rs or reprocessing. This is beyond recycling! This is the circular economy.
