Climate Cafe- Circular Economy

7 March @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The online only event will be hosted by Adam Price. We have several short talks on the subject of the circular economy. Speakers:

Terri Vogt, Circular Economy consultant, Aberdeen, will describe the concept of the circular economy and the need to move away from the outdated mine-manufacture-use-and-dispose linear economy used in the past.

Rachel Maurice, ACA communications manager, will describe how the Fairphone mobile phone exemplifies circular-economy principles, and illustrates future product manufacture, repair and refurbishment.

Ellen Delph, project manager of KR BON Reduction, Newburgh, Aberdeenshire, will show how her company refurbishes and markets insulated panels for building refurbishment.

Rory Leigh, managing director of Ghillied Ltd Edinburgh, will explain how they reprocess old clothing into new.

Angus Grahame, Splosh Ltd, Wales, talks about their returnable sachets of concentrated cleaning agents, used for refilling their reusable plastic bottle dispensers, reducing waste by about 95%.

Q&A session. Questions and views from the floor will be sought. Of particular interest will be examples of other established and developing circular economy companies and products.


Please note, ACA’s Climate Cafes are normally hybrid (online and live event) but we are looking for a new venue, so this one is online only. Sorry for that.
