change from a linear to a circular economic model.
Closing the Loop is an optimistic exploration of diverse businesses making the change from a linear (take-make-waste) economic model to a circular (zero waste) economic model. The film takes an in-depth look at business sites from the UK, Europe, Latin America, and South Africa.
Created by Emmy Award winner, Graham Sheldon & Dr. Wayne Visser, Professor of Integrated Value at Antwerp Management School, Closing the Loop is the world’s first feature-length documentary on the circular economy. Closing the Loop debuted on Earth Day in April 2018 and already is already slated for 125 screenings in 38 countries, with new ones being added daily.
The key takeaway message from Closing the Loop is that moving to a circular economy is not only essential and urgent, but also entirely possible, if we take inspiration from the pioneers, such as those featured in the film, and scale up similar business models, product innovations and customer solutions around the world.
