Three years ago (time flies!) we published this blog post entitled ‘Toward a Circular Economy’. Today, we are glad to share with you this video. This is the future we believe in, and you?

Since the very beginning Irene and I have made clear that Decimononic is our instrument to change the world for better. We have pointed out that we are moving towards an environmental disaster caused by a non-sustainable economic system characterized by the waste of natural resources due to the abuse of disposable goods and programmed obsolescence, which means that a new approach to the global manufacturing/conssumption system is essential. This is is easy to say, of course, but which alternative can we offer? Alright, it is time to give an answer to this question.
As you know, our economic model follows a simple scheme: take, make, dispose. Is this sustainable in the long term? No, absolutely not because natural resources are limited. This is the reason why we need to develop a different model, based on sustainable consumption and restoration. We need rational consumption patterns and a regenerative industrial system which restores material, energy, and labor inputs. Would this be possible? We do think so and we are most pleased to share with you some valuable resources to learn more about the concept of ‘Circular Economy’.
