If you wish to get familiar with the circular economy model or if you want to know more about it, please watch this interesting Webinar organized by CEC that I attended last week. BUT, if you don't have the time to watch it, here are some resources shared during the event that will help you stay engaged:
Visit Dr. Roland Geyer’s website to learn more about the Circular Economy model and how you can help reduce the environmental impact from industrial production and consumption.
Learn more and stay updated on the soon to be completed Santa Barbara County ReSource Center at the Tajiguas Landfill.
Review the City of Santa Barbara’s Trash & Recycling webpage for tips on how to reduce waste and what can and cannot be recycled – and check out Marborg Industries’ how to dispose of anything guide.
Reference Toad & Co.’s Eco Cheat Sheet so you know what’s in your clothes and select options that are best for the environment.
Check out the Ellen MacArthur Foundation website – and listen to their podcast to learn more about how they are promoting the shift to a Circular Economy.
Additional actions you can take:
Join the Santa Barbara Circular Economy Club and help bring the circular economy to cities worldwide by building strong local networks that design and implement local circular initiatives.
