About Today’s Guest

Today’s episode is about DOING and for that reason I’m so happy that I can share it with you as our special 50th episode! Today’s theme revolves around asking: What would happen if you applied circular concepts to a local area or region? Ashleigh Morris of Coreo is here to dive into this question with us and share her experience! In this episode, Ashleigh tells us about the state of circular economy in Australia, and she shares her experiences practically implementing circular economy strategies. Tune in to hear about Coreo’s first project aptly named the Circular Experiment, where applying circular concepts such as reverse logistics and asset sharing to a street in Queensland resulted in economic, environmental and social benefits! Ashleigh also shares key factors you should consider before embarking on your own circular experiment. Resources and links discussed in this episode can be found at gettinginthelooppodcast.com .
