What is circular design?

Circular-designing a product or service means to make it desirable for customers, minimize its environmental impact and maximize its business impact along its life-cycle by designing a circular system around it.

A key aim of circular design is to reduce to a minimum the overall environmental impact of a product or service. It refers to innovative design solutions in both products and services that take into consideration the entire life-cycle – from the extraction of raw materials to production, distribution and use – all the way to recycling, “repairability”, and disposal.

Circular economy and circular design are all about smart, innovative and sustainable design solutions with minimal or no waste when a product is consumed. What whatever waste there is should go back to the producer, to be used by consumers in a new context or be returned to nature without doing any harm.
