Thanks for Michael Goodson for approaching Dr Wayne Visser about providing the documentary for screening at Green Drinks.

Closing the Loop

Michael graduated with a law degree from the University of KwaZulu Natal in Durban South Africa, where he went on to practice and lecture in commercial litigation, banking law and insolvency. He has been involved in a number of environmental cases opposing the granting of mining rights in biodiverse and protected areas.

In the process of changing his career path to combine his legal skills with sustainability, he became acquainted with Dr Wayne Visser via his studies through the Cambridge Institute of Sustainable Leadership.

Closing the Loop is an optimistic exploration of diverse businesses making the change from a linear (take-make-waste) economic model to a circular (zero waste) economic model. The film takes an in-depth look at business sites from the UK, Europe, Latin America, and South Africa.
