What does circular economy mean?

A circular economy is a system which seeks to eliminate waste and pollution by keeping products and materials in circulation. In a circular economy, products and materials are reused, recycled, repaired or repurposed.

Unlike the current system, where products and materials are used once or twice and disposed of, a circular economy would encourage those products and materials to be used again.
