The Circular Sessions - glimpses of a circular future #3

  • Eco Villa 251 Hereford Street Christchurch, Canterbury, 8011 New Zealand (map)

Join us for the third installment in this year’s Circular Sessions series. The get-together will feature two short presentations, and you’ll have the chance to ask questions and network over a delicious circular homemade breakfast and coffee. This is included in the attendance fee. Absolutely no need to eat before you come – vegan, gluten free requirements are covered.

This month you’ll get insight into two unique businesses embracing circularity.

  • Medsalv (Oliver Hunt): a company that reprocesses single-use medical devices, returning these to hospitals for re-use. Medsalv is adapting and applying an international industry model to New Zealand. It deals with our unique small scale and regulatory requirements, all within the politically charged context of health care.

  • Eco Villa (Nisha Duncan): a boutique hotel with a twist. It has big ambitions of creating a business where everybody benefits, including the environment. Nisha and her husband recycled and re-used materials from the property which were found in the re-build. They up-cycled these components into many different features throughout the villa, creating a unique opportunity to showcase sustainable principles and inspire people whilst staying in a 'home from home'.
