About Lesson

Circular Economy

A circular economy is an economic and environmental concept that challenges the traditional “take-make-dispose” linear model. In a circular economy, resources and products are managed in a way that prioritizes sustainability and waste reduction. This means designing products with longevity and recyclability in mind, encouraging the reuse and refurbishment of items, and recycling materials to create new products.

The goal is to minimize resource consumption, reduce environmental impact, and create a closed-loop system where materials and products are continually reused, repurposed, and regenerated.
