What is the circular economy? What does it look like in practice? Who’s doing it now? And how can you get involved? This week, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation launches a three-part video series that explores what the circular economy really means for businesses, people and society, and some of the most innovative examples of it in action today.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was launched in 2010 to accelerate the transition to a circular economy by world record breaking sailor Ellen MacArthur. Since its creation the charity has emerged as a global thought leader, establishing the circular economy on the agenda of decision makers across business, government and academia.
