Sir, – I was curious to read that the term “circular economy” means little to the public and half of the members of the Irish Business and Employers Confederation admit they mean nothing (for “‘circular economy’ law is determined) has a huge impact”, News , 19 June). In olden times, reuse, repair and recycling were the norm, and home appliances such as cookers were built to last more than 30 years and other items such as clothes and school books were carefully handed over. So it looks like we’re going round in circles. Maybe not such a square thing. – Yours, etc.,
Cabinetly, Dublin 18.
