From Re-use and Repair, to Sensors and Smart Tech
New writing… Two more of my recent pieces for Guardian Sustainable Business are now live. Running in their paid-content section on Sustainable Electricals, sponsored by WRAP, the articles explore the business case for adoption and promotion of circular economy models in the sector, with particular reference to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE):
- How and why businesses are persuading consumers to covet pre-loved product – ‘Re-use, repair, repeat: electronics retailers test out gadget trade-in schemes’; plus
- How the Internet of Things could help society conserve resources but only if we deal with smart tech at end-of-life – ‘How sensors could propel us closer to a resource-efficient world’.
