The Great Recovery is campaigning to get the UK to move away from the ‘make-use-dispose’ economic model. They organised a workshop, at SWEEEP – e-waste recycling plant. See blog Julia wrote about the visit. The well attended workshop highlighted the negative impacts of our current linear system, which means that raw materials are dug out of the ground, used and then disposed of. They are promoting what’s called the ‘circular economy’, which essentially means that raw materials and resources are used, re-used and recycled – as with natural eco-systems.
