Global Sustainability Activities – Post-Program

Activity 3: The Circular Economy

How It Works

Here you will learn about the concept of a circular economy and apply this environmental approach to products you regularly use in you own life. This will serve as a sort of “The Story of Stuff pt. 3”, which will show an alternative to the linear “produce, use, then throw away” economy that dominates our economy today.

How You Do It

Take Away Points

  • As mentioned before in the “Out of the Box” activity, sustainable actions have the ability to both save money and be better for the environment.
  • It is likely that the solution you created with the Circular Economy Worksheet is either being done now or currently being worked on. Try to find a company that is doing something similar to your ideal Circular Economy solution.
