Before humans, there was no such thing as ‘waste’. The Earth was this healthy, self-sufficient, thriving planet, operating in a balanced and circular manner, zen as shit. Yet, since the first industrial revolution, humankind has been extracting, modifying, manufacturing, manipulating and then simply discarding resources. According to a report produced by Circle Economy earlier this year at the annual World Economic Forum, only 9% of the world today is circular, leaving a ginormous ‘circularity gap’. So how do we close this gap?
My husband and I were recently delighted to be accepted to attend Climate Reality Leadership Corps training, with the inspirational Al Gore and many, incredible activists and positive change-makers - and while strictly speaking the above **isn’t** their official tagline, it’s totally what they mean, ammiright?
I am not a religious person, in the sense that I am not affiliated with an organised religion - I do, however, acknowledge that there are billions of people that DO believe in organised religion and I respect their right to worship.
Surely then, in return, religious members from across the globe should be respecting my liberties to fight for a planet fit for my children to live in, love in and - should they wish to - worship in?
