A Critique Of The Circular Economy

As we continue to trash our oceans and terrestrial environments, many are pitching the model of the circular economy as an answer to our problem with waste. Building on the reduce, reuse, recycle model, the circular economy promises an end to overflowing dumps where products are continually repurposed to serve a new function. While the promise of circularity sounds so good, this episode we unpack how a circular economy universe might actually see us produce even more waste and potentially cause greater social inequity.
