Today, more than ever, we continue to consume nonrenewable resources — such as oil — as though we have an endless supply. This is not sustainable.
The EU adopted a plan in March 2020 to achieve a circular economy in order to reach their 2050 climate neutrality target. A huge systemic effort is needed to achieve this and there are major benefits to adopting a circular economy that make it worth the hardwork.
Through a circular economy, reusing resources and refurbishing old products instead of throwing them in the bin are the norm. This ensures that we use fewer non-renewable resources and is beneficial for everyone. There is less need to mine finite resources. Reusing materials means less rubbish, pollution and plastic in our rivers and oceans, and fewer landfills. Did you know that humans eat around a credit card worth of plastic every week due to plastics getting into our food chain?
We’re all rushed off our feet with busy lives, and there’s only so far most of us can go in order to buy better. Picking up a bottle of cheap washing up liquid in the supermarket is a whole lot easier than ordering a refillable product, cleaning out the old bottle and bringing it to a refill stockist. The reward for going to this effort is that you can feel good knowing that there is one less plastic bottle going into the bin and possibly ending up in a landfill or our waterways.
