The aim of circularity is to eliminate waste, thus keeping a valuable resource in the economy and out of nature. In a circular economy, resources are kept in use for as long as possible, then when they have fulfilled their purpose they are recycled into new products and materials of the same quality and nature. The circular economy is designed to maximise the reusability of products and raw materials and minimise value destruction. Unlike the current linear system, which converts raw materials into products that are destroyed at the end of their life.
Reduse, reuse and recycle! Two times a year we organise the Thrift Shop for you. To give your unwanted stuff a second chance, but also to stimulate you to first look for second-hand when you need a new product. Buying or selling something second hand can have a considerable environmental benefit: it saves raw materials, energy, water and waste. There is no need to make something new for everything when you buy second-hand. And it saves on waste if you throw away less old stuff.
