I chose this article because it shows good examples of how the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is pursuing circularity. The article discusses what Bevier Cafe is doing to be more sustainable. One of the concepts they have implemented is their aquaponics system. This system works by having the fish excrete waste into the water and then that water is pumped into the growing beds which helps keep the plant roots wet. Then the roots clean the water to go back to the fish. This is a great example of a circular system. That is not the only thing they have implemented, they have also started a program that prevents throwing away to-go boxes. Now people purchase a reusable container that they clean and take care of, all you have to do is bring it to the cafe. This is a great way to cut down on waste. I think this concept relates to class because it is sustainable development on our very own campus!
