Are you suffering from some kind of “eco-anxiety“?
Having a hard time deciding if you can do something to reverse climate change?
Did you join your teenage kids at a climate protest – recently?
I want to help, if I can….
Instead of suffering from eco-anxiety, I am searching out the stuff that is working to fix it!
There is a lot!
December 2020 – For the first time in history human-made materials now likely outweigh all life on Earth, scientists say in research detailing the “crossover point” at which humanity’s footprint is heavier than that of the natural world.
The weight of roads, buildings and other constructed or manufactured materials is doubling roughly every 20 years, and authors of the research say it currently weighs 1.1 teratonnes (1.1 trillion tonnes).
This UN report, says the adoption of “value-retention processes” could slow down our digging up new raw material by 80-99% and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 79 to 99%.
“We are using the planet’s resources at a faster rate than the planet can replenish them. ” Erik Solheim, Head of UN Environment said. “The report shows us how we can maintain economic growth and preserve our environment by changing our habits at the industrial level.”
Muck re-clamation, Waste Separation, Trash Trade, Emissions Capture……all have value…….someone needs what you don’t want – “value-retention process” – it will keep the economy moving and reduce the amount of new material we dig up.
And it works that way! It is working that way! The Circular Economy works. It is a Waste Rush and a Waste Re-think! The Big Boys have started!
Do you “take care” of any waste at the end of your production line?
DON’T DUMP your waste!
Say NO to Linear: Take, Make, Waste
SELL your waste !!
>>Go Circular – close-the-loop: Harvest, Make, Harvest again
We need to start planning the “value-retention process” into the life-cycle of everything we use, our products, our production systems, and our business plans. Even the financial guys want this.
This is difficult, may cause disruption, mind boggling for many and requires a
It’s really very exciting!
A positive eye opener, when you see your own way forward!
No matter how small the issue or how large, I would be happy to try and help you find what you need or need to know…..so you can feel that you have joined the Circular Economy.
