I am interested in the broad topic of environmental sustainability, with a focus on green energy. I believe there are both a scope and a need for everyone – from the disengaged individual to national governments – to take part in bettering the environment.
Towards a Circular Economy

Iulia Falcan shares the concept of circular economy, refering broadly to reducing waste as much as possible on one side, and developing long lasting and re-usable day-to-day products on the other, thus limiting the negative impact that waste has on the natural environment.
The concept of circular economy encompasses many phenomena, of varying degrees of complexity, that allow even the most seemingly disengaged person to have a positive impact on the environment.
Dipping your toe into the sea of knowledge on ways towards environmental sustainability can be overwhelming. However, be assured that there are many small changes anyone can make that will have a positive impact!
