4 lessons from nature to build a circular economy...
1. Renew and regenerate. A classic example of circular economy in nature is the cycling of resources – water, carbon, minerals, etc. – back into new or existing systems.
2. Protect and extend. Plants and animals have long been studied for their ability to protect themselves and their environment.
3. Creating value from thin air. Air plays a critical role in our natural ecosystem, and innovative companies are starting to look at how the air can be a new source of value.
4. Turning even the most challenging waste into value. The concept of “waste” doesn’t really exist in nature. Dead leaves and animal droppings, for example, are critical fuel for new life.

By 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the oceans.
Yet the problems start long before the plastic reaches our oceans, rivers and beaches, and so must the solutions.
We must tackle this flood at the source, we must eliminate the plastic we don’t need, we must innovate, so all the plastic we do need is designed to be safely reused, recycled, or composted.
And we must circulate everything we use, making sure the plastic we produce stays in the economy and never becomes waste or pollution.
