Episode 212 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, in lieu of a guest, Craig gives a presentation based on one of his public talks. He details what a Circular Economy actually means in contrast to the much more limited definition being used by the Scottish Government. Rather than merely “increasing recycling”, he looks at the “nested loops” that make up a Circular Economy as products are redesigned, reused, repaired, and recycled. In particular, he shows how Tool and Resource Libraries can give us access to better products than we are able to buy in our current linear consumer economy.

A video version of this presentation with illustrative slides will be posted to Craig’s channel here: https://www.youtube.com/craigdalzell
