An Introduction

By wasting less and recycling more we can keep resources circulating in the economy and reduce demand for virgin materials.

Our consumer society follows a linear model where we take resources, make products and then discard them, creating needless waste and adding to both carbon emissions and pollution. By keeping things in use longer, and finding new uses for the discarded resources, we can minimise our environmental impact and help fight climate change.
