What is the circular economy?

I've been trying to describe the circular economy to people. It's a very effective way of saving waste, and not a new approach but one known to work, and recently given a new name and new impetus. This little video says it much better than I can! Watch it, and perhaps think about how it can apply to your business - it is already used in some parts of the print industry. http://youtu.be/Cd_isKtGaf8

Did you know?

Do you know that you can improve fuel consumption and save money by using more efficient tyres? Now there are new labels to help you choose, and since the beginning of the month the information must be clearly displayed for all new tyres.

They are graded in the familiar A - G that we're used to seeing on electrical appliances. The difference in fuel consumption between each level is about 2.5% - 4.5% - which can work out quite a bit with today's fuel prices. The label also shows how the level of rolling noise a tyre will make and its performance in the wet.
