Our planet’s systems are being pushed beyond their limits: the health of its water, air and soils under siege. From deforestation and soil erosion, to pollution of rivers, oceans and the air we breathe, our planetary health is waning badly.

Sea rise is a very real threat to millions, yet in his beautiful and inspired repurposing and reuse of materials David Cass illuminates an alternative future. A future where the products we consume have lives beyond landfill sites. A future where resources are part of a circular economy, one that recognizes their value and the true cost of their waste.

The horizon is rising. Just how far is now down to us.
