“All that glitters is not gold, and not all that’s gold glitters”
This observation, written by Geoffrey Chaucer in the 12th century, reminds us that value in material is not always obvious.
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, a rather more recent saying, is also a proven reality.
In line with the themes of gold and trash, one of the principles of sustainability is re-use rather than discard. This is not just altruistic, it’s good business practice to look for value in what’s left over. Increasingly, businesses are finding value in waste that’s currently being given away, or worse, paying to get taken away.
