As an avid outdoor adventurer, I've seen first-hand the massive negative impact our current linear economy makes on nature. As the circular economy grows, and diverts more valuable resources from ending up in a landfill, and reduces the need for land, water and energy for primary production, I look forward to seeing some of those impacts alleviated and even reversed.
