I love what Dame Ellen MacArthur is doing. But you have to wonder absent her following and status where we'd be. For me, it's not that I've suddenly discovered the circular economy -- to my mind it's no different to the idea of sustainability -- but I know it represents the best hope (by dint of the label?) to make a real difference in the way we see the world and live out our lives.
Even if you're not interested in what she has to say, there are some profound questions that continue to go unanswered based on our obsession with growth, economic prosperity and our consumerist society.
In time, I can see me talking on the subject in an attempt to bridge the gap between the rhetoric and reality, but, for now, I'm happy to learn, understand and share.
