R0 – Refuse

The Circular R’s

 

The “Circular R’s” is a collection of activities that make up the circular economy. Although these activities are already present in the linear economy they are treated as a standalone activity.

As we move forward we must begin to, increasingly, refuse products and services that are not circular and sustainable.

We have adapted the original Circular R’s Framework to include a legal structure for businesses and consumers to assist in defining these activities during the course of consumer transactions. These legal parameters need not be fixed as businesses must remain competitive and offer a range a options according to their capability. To learn more visit the Circular Activities page for links to the different Circular R’s.
