Discover the 7Rs of the circular economy
The 7Rs are seven words beginning with the letter R and refer to the actions needed to achieve the shift to a circular economy.
Currently, the production and consumption model is based on a linear economy that consists of make, buy, use and throw away.
With this model, every time a product is to be manufactured, a new raw material is obtained, generating a large environmental impact.
For this reason, we want to promote a circular economy in which waste is reintroduced into the production chain and thus take advantage of the resources we already have to give them a second useful life.
What are the 7Rs of the circular economy?
The products are designed and manufactured with the environment and its impact on it in mind.
Consume fewer "throwaway" products to generate less waste.
Give a second life to materials or objects before discarding them.
If something stops working and needs repair, repair it whenever possible of course, this is always a sustainable alternative.
Update those objects that have become obsolete in order to give them a new use.
Recover used materials to reintroduce them back into the production process.
When a product has already had all possible uses, it is time to recycle it so that it can be used as raw material for other products.
