What we can do

There are some things we can do to make better use of our resouces:

  • Lean Production - making goods which require less materials at the outset
  • Waste reduction - reducing the amount of waste created at all stages of manufacturing and retailing
  • Lifetime optimisation - reducing the number of working products we throw away
  • Move from supplier of goods to supplier of services - increasing the number of products that are leased rather than purchased outright
