Peggy and Birdie Carpenter, senior researcher, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, talk about the circular economy. She defines the circular economy, saying there are something like 10 Rs now, explaining it is important: to refuse, to rethink, and to reduce. Another category is to think about how to keep products in the economy if possible. The last category is recycle or recover.

They also discuss:

  • How plastics have been a product of convenience and bring great value, but also there is a big downside.
  • How do we do things better and how do we make things better.
  • How can we get the next generation excited about circularity and how they can save the planet.
