Life’s Principles: Unlocking Nature’s Design Secrets through Biomimicry
At the core of biomimicry lie the Life’s Principles, a set of universal design guidelines derived from the patterns and strategies found in nature. These principles serve as a framework for sustainable and regenerative solutions, offering insights into how organisms have adapted and flourished over time. By emulating these principles, we can create solutions that are efficient and resilient and in harmony with the natural world.
The butterfly diagram of the circular economy
You may already know the concept of a technical and biological cycle as a framework for the circular economy.

We will have a closer look at how these cycles work with the help of the famous so-called butterfly diagram.
What is Cradle to Cradle?
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?
