TOPIC: Circular Economy: Recycle, Reuse, Repair & Share
This discussion will focus on businesses and organizations that are leading the way in efforts to recycle, reuse, repair and share products and services—moving away from the current disposable economy model—to a model that will help conserve resources and sustain communities and consumers in the 21st Century.
Recycle, reuse, repair & share—what is the circular economy?
National trends and local businesses—mapping green assets in the local economy
Leading by example—circular economy pioneers in Montgomery County
Maximizing returns—how can we continue to grow opportunities locally?
* A circular economy is one in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.
