Welcome to the Circular Economy: The Next Step in Sustainable Living

by Claire Potter Author

This guide to living sustainably introduces the concept of the 'circular economy,' a system where no waste is generated, nothing enters, and nothing leaves. Rather than the 'linear economy,' or even the 'recycling economy,' in which waste goes directly to the landfill or is mediated by recycling processes before the excess arrives at the landfill, the circular economy strives to refuse (unnecessary materials), reduce (consumption), reuse, repair, refill, and repurpose, and regenerate materials so that landfills become irrelevant relics of our destructive and wasteful past. Through simple acts and small but significant steps, you can make the circular economy that much closer to becoming a reality. A brilliantly written and accessible guide to living more gently and consuming and using resources more thoughtfully.
