Residents invited to join Council's webinar on the Circular Economy
10 June 2021
Residents are invited to join Richmond Council’s online webinar 'Beyond Recycling: The Circular Economy' to learn more about the Circular Economy in Richmond upon Thames.
Residents will have the opportunity to learn more about the Circular Economy, what it is and how it can be applied to residents' daily lives. Circular systems employ reuse, sharing, repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing and recycling to create a closed-loop system, minimising the use of resource inputs and the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions.
The webinar will provide residents with an opportunity to have their questions answered about a system aimed at eliminating waste and promoting the continual reuse of resources. Attendees will also receive handy tips on how you can make changes in your daily lives.
The webinar will also spotlight local businesses and projects that are already engaged in work around the Circular Economy, including Richmond Furniture Scheme, a local furniture recycling charity serving Richmond and Twickenham, and Refill Larder, a zero waste store in Teddington that is helping to reduce plastic and packaging waste.
The webinar will take place on Thursday 17 June during London Circular Economy Week 2021. The event run from 6.30 to 7.30pm.

Cllr Julia Neden-Watts, Chair of the Environment, Sustainability, Culture and Sports Committee, said:
"The Circular Economy needs to become established as an important feature of all our lives. This webinar is a great opportunity for residents to learn more about how they can get involved and hear from local organisations already involved in this work.
"I strongly encourage residents to join our webinar to find out more about this topic, how it can have an impact and how you can make simple changes in your daily life to contribute towards the Circular Economy."
