In this video I explain what we mean by circular economy, I go through all the things we can do to go from our current economy to a circular economy and I use many examples. At the end I also recommend a very good book if you want to learn more. You’ll see… there is a lot more to it than just recycling.

Circular economy is when everything is healthy food for something else. In other words, it means running the economy like nature runs its own business. To create a circular economy, we can split into two categories the things that we need to run into closed loops: technical and biological materials. Two transition strategies can be very helpful as we are trying to create a circular economy: substitution and dematerialization.

Of course, creating a circular economy is only one piece of the sustainability puzzle and many other aspects have to be taken into account to get 100% sustainable (climate change, sustainable energy, sustainable agriculture, social sustainability, etc.).
