The Fashion Show
Explore how fashion can thrive by designing a circular economy for clothes
The Circular EconomyCircular EconomyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature. Show explores, investigates, and showcases the very latest circular design, landmark policies, and business innovation taking place, to tackle some of the biggest global challenges we currently face.
What will it take to transform our throwaway economy into one where waste is eliminated, resources are circulated, and nature is regenerated?
Join us every month to find out.
We’ll be talking to circular economy pioneers across the globe, who are working towards a future that creates prosperity for the economy, the environment, and for people, within our planetary boundaries.
Episode 61: Eliminate, circulate, regenerate
Why is our linear economylinear economyAn economy in which finite resources are extracted to make products that are used - generally not to their full potential - and then thrown away ('take-make-waste'). so hard to change? In this episode, we’ll explore the challenges in transitioning from our take, make, waste economy to a circular economy based on three key principles — eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials, and regenerate nature.
