Consumer Goods

Many consumer products have a short lifecycle: they do not last long and are quickly replaced, such as disposables and packaging. Other products like clothing and household appliances are used more than once but lifecycles are getting shorter as well, creating overconsumption and waste. Examples are fast fashion and mobile devices. Circular Economy strategies have the potential to offer solutions: use renewable sources, offer new service based business models, enable easy reuse, repair and recycling.
