What is throw-away society?

Google says: throw-away society is a human society strongly influenced by consumerism. Describing overconsumption and excessive production of short-lived goods.

Relying on fast cheap products has a devastating impact on our planet.

How can we move away from throw-away society?

A “circular economy” approach would help save resources. This is an economic system that aims to eliminate waste and continual use of resources.

This means reusing, sharing, repairing, refurbishing, remanufacturing and recycling to create a close-loop system. (All things we can put into place as individuals)

Creating a circular economy could minimise the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions. For a sustainable infrastructure that benefits us and the planet.
