Philosophy of the circular economy.

We live in a society that if something gets broken it is often cheaper and easier to throw it out and buy a new one. This is what is called a Linear Economy,that relies on cheap, widely available resources to create favourable conditions for economic growth and stability.
I first came across the concept of a Circular Economy a few years ago and decided that this is something I would like to investigate further. Little did I know that here at SMJ we are already following some of the different principles of The Circular Economy.
