You may already know the concept of a technical and biological cycle as a framework for the circular economy. For transitioning to a circular economy, the two main cycles are divided into smaller loops which show the processes that enable materials and products to stay in circulation or sagely biodegrade. We will have a closer look at how these cycles work with the help of the famous so-called butterfly diagram.
When thinking about transitioning to a circular economy, a big question in your head might be, how can I implement these principles in practice? When discussing implementing circularity, people often refer to Cradle to Cradle. So what’s it all about?
10 Tips for circular design. The goal of circular design is for products, components, or materials to stay in closed loops as long as possible so we can use them theoretically forever. These ten basic principles help to achieve this goal.
