Circular Economy

NOTES:

  • Our current economic model is LINEAR, meaning that we use things up…whereas, biological systems are CIRCULAR ie nothing is wasted…
  • There are many schools of thoughts:
    • Industrial Symbiosis
    • Performance Economy
    • BioMimicry
    • Cradle to Cradle design
  • Idea is to design waste out of the system Eg. Water packaging that dissolves into water and so can be consumed
  • Most utilities like carsĀ in this system would be a SERVICE, where the service provider would essentially do waste management for better profits
