WHAT IS CIRCULAR ECONOMY ?

A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.

Did you know that electronic #waste now makes up 5% of all solid waste worldwide ? 
Nearly the same amount as all plastic packaging.
But there is always a solution : @wearefairphone is the first circular phone. Ethic, easy to repair and made out of recycled materials.

If you #ecodesign your building like "lego", it makes it possible to recover the #material when you don't need the building any more. You don't pay for the building; you invest in materials you will be able to sell or #reuse.

Memory from Ladakh with Amaley, who hosted us during our trek. 
People living in villages of the mountains have a way more circular life than we do in cities. They reuse everything they have - even the cow excrements that they use to make fire.
