The average American produces about five pounds of trash, every single day!
An Economic Eclipse is a book about the use of business as an institution to spearhead waste reduction in the daily lives of individuals. Specifically, it explores principles that business leaders can adopt to harmonize their work with the circular economic movement and zero-waste ideology.
Within these pages, you will discover the potential of social entrepreneurship and how the corporate world can be a driver of positive change, rather than a parasitic drain on the environment. You'll learn about viable closed-loop systems through stories such as:

An Economic Eclipse removes the stigma of waste as a bleak end-of-life existence by revealing that it is, in fact, a creative and profitable key to our future.
