Creating circularity and ‘second life’ products

As we are seeing such severe changes in climates across the globe, it is time for us to question our consumer and shopping habits. We should look for brands that are creative, sustainable and committed to be positive agents of change in what concerns the future of our planet.

Circularity, commonly known as a lifecycle approach to sustainability, is gaining momentum among manufacturers worldwide. A circular business model maximises the use of limited natural resources, reduces reliance on the waste economy, and very often, also saves costs. Unlike recycling, the aim of a second life is to circulate products or components in a way that ensures materials are used at their highest value for the longest time possible.

Two newly launched rosé wines this […]

Understanding the changing nature of ice

In August 2021, our Adventure Correspondent Hugh Francis Anderson embarked on an audacious journey to recreate a Polar expedition on its centenary, alongside discovering more about the changing Arctic.

Not all heroes wear a cape and most prefer to keep their identity anonymous. This is the case of the Alycats, a team of award-winning photographers that regularly donate their time and the fruits of their work to fight illegal hunting and poaching in Africa in support of Singita’s 100-year conservation purpose Uncontrolled hunting and […]

For a very long time, the idea of reintroducing endangered species in captivity back into their wild natural habitats was very often thought an impossible task. Many attempts were made with disappointing and heart-breaking results. The task at hand was, and is, immense. But for John Aspinall, the founder of The Aspinall Foundation and his […]
