One of the things we would like to do on the website here is share stories regularly around the topics of consumerism, economics, and the shift towards a fair and sustainable economy. It’s part of our role in ‘reading the times’ and looking for signs of change.
We’d love you to take part. If there’s a story or article that has inspired you, email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us at @JoyInEnough.
- A good example of the Circular Economy in action is this new partnership that will see recycling turned into insulation panels.

- Tearfund have been focusing on plastics recently, and currently have a petition to direct more support towards waste processing in poorer countries – something that could cut ocean plastic, create jobs and improve health.
