TIP

WRITE THE KEYWORDS ON A PIECE OF PAPER.

We mine for raw materials such as oil, minerals, and metals, make products and throw them away after use. This ‘take-make-dispose’ approach has brought us high living standards, wealth and comfort. However, the current model also leads to social inequality, depletion of natural resources, environmental pollution and contributes to climate change.

In our linear economy, many products don’t last very long. In order to cut production costs and sales prices, many products are ‘designed for the dump’. Consumers are encouraged to replace broken products with new ones instead of repairing them. Product lifespans can also be shortened by fast technological innovation, especially in the case of consumer electronics, such as smartphones. Triggered by new designs and functionalities, many consumers experience a phenomenon called “perceived obsolescence”: even though their old smartphone still works, they replace it with a new product.

It imitates natural systems

Current economic model

It recovers as much as possible

The model involves a rethink of our approach of consumption

Take, make, dispose

Goods end up in landfills

We take raw materials from de Earth

It recognises the value of resources on a planet with a finite amount of them

Methane emissions generated from organic waste rotting in landfill

It's a restorative system

It aims to better use resources

One of the main objectives is recovering and repurposing resources

A new consumer model

Waste is trucked long distances producing more pollution

We can create safe and compostable materials

Products are made and transported using renewable energy

Value materials are being buried

It encourages a culture of consumption

More energy and water must be used to make new products

Lots of products are trow away after use them

WRITE ON A PAGE IN TWO COLUMNS

  • CHARACTERISTICS OF LINEAR ECONOMY
  • CHARACTERISTICS OF CIRCULAR ECONOMY

READ the text, REFLECT and TALK ABOUT !

The circular economy rethinks all aspects of the ‘take-make-dispose’ idea: how to manage resources, how to make and use products, and what to do with them at the end-of-life. Products are designed for longer use and reuse. They are well maintained and repaired, have a high second-hand value and can easily be taken apart and turned into new products. They are made of recycled or bio-based materials, reducing material losses through landfill and incineration. In this way, product lives are extended and material cycles are closed, minimising the need for new materials and energy. At the same time, environmental pressures linked to resource extraction, emissions and waste are reduced.
