CIRCULAR ECONOMY DEFINITION:  A circular economy is one that is restorative and regenerative by design, and which aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times, distinguishing between technical and biological cycles.  (Ellen MacArthur Foundation.)

Another definition says it this way:  "A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life."  (WRAP UK)

Bruce Ryan of CannaSystems has written a 2 part article on the subject with Cannabis as the model for a sustainable circular economy.  Click the graphic he created (at right) or here to view the first part of the article.  (Part 2 is here or view all of Bruce Ryan's Cannabis articles on LinkedIn here)
