    Here goes... my first general Buzz, @Andrew Porter...

    There are some amazing things happening in industry and business right now, that go way beyond greenwashy, sustainability policies. Whether we are business owners and influencers, or 'consumers' and users, we all have a role to play in bringing about the shift Ellen MacArthur talks about here.

    If this video excites you, come and join the Circular Economy* hive I started. Learn more, share stories, get inspired.
    *Maybe I could have linked that, I have no idea how.

    #1 Oh, it's way more than a concept. It's happening (supported at global governmental levels) and it's extraordinarily exciting. As a horticulturist, it probably seems blindingly obvious that this is how things need to go, but the fascinating thing is that the drivers behind a lot of the progress being made has very little to do with protecting the environment, and far more to do with financial opportunity.

    This is an interesting concept, certainly one to watch to see how it progresses and develops over time, in business and with government, thanks for the tag Claire!

    Here's a practical example of a high street retailer rethinking how they do business - with their customers and operationally - and embracing circular economy principles.

    How do we sustain economic growth in a world of finite natural resources and a growing population? With natural resources becoming ever more difficult to obtain and our industrial processes exponentially impacting our environment. Our future economies, by necessity will have to mimic the Earths Natural systems.
