“Unless we go to Circular it’s game over for the planet; it’s game over for society”
These are the opening words of Closing the Loop, the world’s first feature-length documentary film on the circular economy. Going “circular” refers to the necessary change from our current take-make-waste linear economy to a borrow-use-return circular economy (sometimes also referred to as the zero-waste or cradle-to-cradle economy).
Our guest speaker brings the content locally to Milton, Ontario in Canada. Liz Benneian is a former journalist and newspaper editor who has been leading environmental advocacy and educational organizations since 2004. Currently, Liz is Executive Director and Manager of Environmental Education for Ontario green, a charity that provides free, curriculum-based environmental science presentations in schools. Liz is also the founder of the Ontario Zero Waste Coalition, that consists of 25 citizen-led groups from around the Province, that advocates for Zero Waste policies and legislao0tion and against incineration.

Join us for a screening of the first feature-length documentary on the circular economy revolution.
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.
Hosted by Get Social Taranaki in Manifold’s coworking space, you’ll spend this evening in a bean bag with a beer or wine in your hand, including time to mingle with fellow sustainability enthusiasts.
