Thanks for the interesting article that makes one think about humans’ impact on the environment.

Very interesting Robyn, as I have worked in the animal behaviour range I’m expanding my knowledge by following several courses and this is the ultimate topic of interest, really well synthesised and well written! Excellent I particularly love the fact that technology gets inspirational ideas fom burdock burrs and Butterfly wings

Such an important topic and how to operate recycle and upcycle waste. Nature’s circular economy are sustainability and efficiency. Very interesting Robin and much needed processing ways of reusing of waste. Biodegradable natural elements are usable.

Terrific essay Robyn! I read this while I was waiting for my 13 year old car to be serviced, I guess my attempt to continue product maintenance rather than buying a new car. But on another note, and rather depressing, I watched a report by a recycling engineer this past week who stated that only 10-20% of our recycle waste is actually forwarded from the sorting plant. The rest goes into landfill or horrifically, dumped in the ocean. This is in the US, one of the worst countries for recycling for a positive end. There’s so much more education to be done….

Thank you Robyn for the reminder. We do need the be more circular in our thinking and doing.

Hear hear, and brava Robyn!!!

If only everyone could see the beauty of this logic. Thank you for your article.
