Circular with Katie Treggiden
Circular with Katie Treggiden is a new podcast exploring the intersection of craft, design and sustainability. Join Katie as she talks to the thinkers, doers, and makers of the circular economy. These are the people who are challenging the linear take-make-waste model of production and consumption – and working towards something better. Series one focuses on waste and its potential as the raw material of the future.
