Linear Economy Diagram
This diagram illustrates a linear 'take-make-waste' economic model. This is our current predominant economy, where virgin materials are extracted and designed to be used for a short period of time before being discarded in the landfill, incinerated, or ending up as pollution.
Circular Economy Icons
These circular economy icons detail each of the re-entry points of materials in a circular economy. These five re-entry processes include reduce, reuse and repair, redistribute, recondition, and recycle. A sixth icon describes renewable energy, which powers each of these processes.
