Turn waste into wealth during and after the COVID-19 lockdown
The current COVID 19 lockdown is forcing us to look within for sufficiency. At the beginning of the pandemic, people rushed to buy and stock up on essential commodities such as food and toiletries. Stocking up on essentials is one battle won; the next frontier of survival is being frugal and getting the most out of your purchases. Most of us will immediately think of reduced consumption as the only way of getting the most of what we have, but there is more. Frugality relates to the linear production model while increased usability or turning waste into wealth is the central concept behind the circular bioeconomy.
