What is Circular Adelaide?

We need natural resources to make items we use every day but we're using more than we can regenerate each year.

The current linear economy follows a ‘take, make and waste’ model that results in lost resources and lots of waste.

But there is a better way.

In a circular economy all items are used for as long as possible then repaired, repurposed or recycled for future use.

The outcome is less waste, lower greenhouse gas emissions, reduced extraction of natural resources, and increased potential of economic growth and greater employment opportunities.

Circular Adelaide can help you find businesses and activities in the City of Adelaide which support a more circular economy so we can all play our part and reduce our environmental impact.
