The Circular Economy. Great Idea, But Can It Work?
Is there a more sustainable way to drill a hole? Consider that power drill stored at the back of a cupboard at home. On average it’s used for six minutes a year. Surely it would be better to rent one when you need to fix that wonky door? But this would require us to reconsider such tools as services not products. And it would need an entirely different approach to design, manufacturing and disposal. If we pulled it off, the Circular Economy would be much closer.
