How Does the Circular Economy Function?
The circular economy is made up of a set of functions, called the Circular Rs, which provides a framework for several activities. For example, these functions include Refuse, Rethink, Reduce, Repair, Refurbish, Remanufacture, Repurpose, Recyclable Resources and Recovery.
The comparison table below shows the difference between the circular economy’s functions and outcomes and the linear economy (click here to learn about the Linear Economy). To learn more visit the Circular Rs page.
