For the past 250 years, economies in the developed world have been based on a linear model of continuous growth, drawing on the world’s natural resources to make our lives healthier, wealthier and more comfortable.
But our world is already showing the stresses and strains of this “take, make, waste” model. That’s why we’re moving towards a circular economy, based on long-life products that can be renewed, reused, repaired, upgraded and refurbished to preserve precious natural resources, protect habitats and reduce pollution.
Content on this page demonstrates how we can all participate in circular living by undertaking actions in our daily lives in the areas of reuse, repair, repurposing and upcycling.
