Blake Lindley is a circular economist, the Director of the Australasian Circular Textile Association. He is also an Associate Consultant at Edge Environment where he helps businesses transform the way they do businesses. In this episode, hosted by Lottie Dalziel, Blake discusses the circular economy, the spheres of influence, and Blake’s future plans for Australia’s uniform industry.
For Blake, sustainability is really about slowing down. He explains how the services that our natural ecosystem lend us are what underpin our existence. So being sustainable, at this point, means slowing rates of change in the environment around us to fit within the evolutionary constraints that they have.
Blake talks about what being a circular economist actually means, exploring its links with biomimicry - the study of nature's models to imitates or uses them as inspiration for designs that attempt to solve human problems.
