Towards the Circular Economy

We live in the era of consumerism. The world population buys tons of new products every day and throws them away on average 6 months after the purchase. The line between our needs and our wants is blurred, and corporations around the world work hard to satisfy our desires. Our present economy is based on the principle of “taking, making, wasting”, which means we consume the natural resources of the planet in an excessive and disordered way.
