We all need to listen to this podcast

This is the best place to gain knowledge and intuition about what a circular economy means, as well as the steps we are taking, and need to take, to get there.

Great Show

I listened to the episode about waste in the linear economy. The guests explain why this isn’t sustainable and why it’s so advantageous for society to move to a more circular economy.

I enjoyed listening a lot. I’d highly recommend this show.

What about being a citizen)

Good podcast, but terribly disappointed that Ellen refers to people as consumers with the right to choice and says there is not much more we can do to change the system except consume mindfully. I believe we can also use our vote, voice, March for change and exercise our rights as citizens and members of civil society to bring change and create a global circular economy!
