A toast to the circular economy

It is Friday. For some, it is a holiday weekend. While enjoying a drink or three over the next few days, why not sit back and think about all the industry’s links to the circular economy. See it as vicariously doing your bit for sustainability.

If whisky is part of the plans, Scotland might naturally spring to mind. And that is where one eco community is using whisky barrels for a place to live.

Perhaps vodka is more your thing. Well the good folks at 42 below deserve a big shout then, as this brand is doing its bit for sustainability by making eco soap from leftover cocktail lemons.

There are also great options for beer lovers. Toast Ale produces beer from bread that would otherwise go to waste, with Jaw Brew doing the same with morning rolls, while a Danish team uses an abundant summer festival waste product in the process – yes, it is what you might think it can’t be.
