The circular economy is not only imperative for human survival, it is also an opportunity to create a world of infinite abundance, and that’s what has inspired us at Rubbish Ideas. Our mission is to create a waste-free world where humanity has everything we need, and to help others on this journey too.
Founded in 2018, we are a group of designers and sustainability experts, passionate about making a positive change.
We provide consultancy, and we design, make, and sell products and services which support the circular economy.
We are passionate environmentalists, and we believe in following the science. We want to make a real difference.

Our current linear economy is destroying the planet and leaving us in a wasteful dying world. However there is a better way to live and ensure our shared future. We can learn from nature and its infinite cycles and build a sustainable circular economy of our own. This not only makes great sense for the planet but for people and businesses too. You want your company to be around forever, and with a truly circular business model it can be sustained indefinitely, that’s the whole point!
The circular economy offers benefits for the planet, people, and businesses by conserving resources, creating cost savings and economic opportunities, reducing waste and pollution, and creating sustainable jobs. Joining the circular economy can help build a more resilient and equitable society.
When it comes to building circular supply chains, effective communication is key. By being transparent about your sustainability efforts, you can not only build trust with your customers, but also create a competitive advantage. Implementing sustainable systems may come with a cost, but by effectively communicating the value of these changes to your customers, you can not only recoup these costs, but also attract new customers who are looking to support companies that prioritize sustainability. So, join the sustainable movement and not only will you be doing good for the planet, but also for your business’s bottom line.
A key part to sustainability is communication. Connor Bryant, Co-founder & Director of Rubbish Ideas has spoken at IBTM world, Pride UK conference, Wincanton Waste Free & many more. With a focus on sustainability, our key topics are listed below.
At the Norwich Science Festival he made light of a slide deck that wouldn’t obey him, allowing us to see a glimpse of his focused personality. He held the attention of a packed conference room while acknowledging points made by previous speakers and the influence Jonathon Porritt had on him as a youngster.
In short Connor shows his dedication, courage and ambition when he speaks and he does it with humility and a sense of humour.
The Rotary eClub of Innovation was pleased to be able to connect with Connor and listen to his story. It inspired several of our members worldwide. In addition, he went down well at the Sustainability Forum that we arranged in Norwich as part of the Norwich Science Festival where he shared the stage with three other prominent leaders in the environment arena. His messages are clear, engaging and exciting, giving much food for thought to the large audience.
It is an honour to know Connor and I am sure he will continue to make his mark in the World.
