Gifts and Limits of Circular Economy

What is required to create deep and lasting change for EArth? Is Circular Economy the new best approach? The answer has some part of Yes! But it has a lot of limitations that tend to be blocked out by the advocates of Circular Economy.

But we believe you should be asking for the benefit of your understanding and your businesses ethics and practice. In the process of answering them, we give you a second opinion, usually a cont...
