At the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards last night there was a new category called 'Going circular' - recognising work in the circular economy field, which is all about keeping resources re-used continuously. 

The winner of the Going Circular category, Wishbone Design studio, came up with a practicable product using that idea - a children's bike, made from 100% recycled carpet. 

Jennifer McIver from Wishbone tells us about how it works.

For NZ Live this week we're visited by Tennessee band The Danberrys who are joined by New Zealander Vanessa McGowan.
