circular economy

3 principles

Design out waste and pollution

Products of today can become the resources of tomorrow

Keep products and materials in use

Increasing product utilisation, and reuse to preserve the embedded energy, labour, and materials.

Regenerate natural systems

E.g. deploying agricultural practices

Waste and pollution are designed out. Products of today can become the resources of tomorrow and the negative impacts of economic activity are eliminated. 

Products and materials are kept in use. This includes favouring activities that increase product utilisation, and reuse to preserve the embedded energy, labour, and materials. Examples include designing for durability, repair, reuse, remanufacturing, and ultimately recycling.

Natural systems are regenerated. This entails, for instance, deploying agricultural practices that not only avoid degrading soil, but actually rebuild soil health over time.
