how will you design to reduce & recirculate resources? will collec3on rates deliver viable streams? what processing technologies are emerging? what guides or tools inform/assist decision making? is a shid to service based business models realis3c? complexity = ques3ons
take/make/use/break/disposethe linear (sweep it under the rug) system is broken
why have you made it un-‐repairable? upgradable? Glued in baGeries Pentalobe screws Soldered in RAM Image source: www.iﬁxit.com is obsolescence part of your business model?
problem: the things we procure arent green enough; the greenest things buy into systems! poten3al: need for partnerships across value chain – (waste management to design) GPP needs to ask ques3ons which reverberate through value chain
