Have you heard about the term 'Circular Economy'? NSW Circular describes it as "decoupling economic growth from virgin resource use. Circular design of products, services and systems keep resources in the market longer, enabling sharing and reuse business models to become business as usual."

There are already so many great circular economy businesses in the Mid North Coast. If this is your area get in touch with our new Circular Economy Project Officer, Tia McIntyre.
