What is the Circular Economy?

According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Definition circular economy «It is a generic term to define an economy designed to be able to regenerate itself. In a circular economy, the flows of materials are of two types: biological ones, capable of being reintegrated into the biosphere, and technical ones, destined to be re-evaluated without entering the biosphere”.

The circular economy is therefore an economic system planned to reuse materials in subsequent production cycles, reducing waste as much as possible.

So why Vintage online?

Antiques, Vintage, Modern Antiques and creative reuse are sectors related to the reuse economy, in many cases of valuable products but always circular economy.

The linear economic model ‘take-make-dispose’ is based on the accessibility of large quantities of resources and energy and is increasingly less suited to the reality in which we find ourselves operating. Initiatives to support efficiency – which work to reduce resources and fossil energy consumed per unit of production – alone can delay the crisis of the economic model, but are not sufficient to solve the problems given by the finite nature of stocks .

The transition from the linear model to a circular model is therefore necessary, which in considering all the phases – from design, to production, to consumption, up to destination at the end of life – is able to seize every opportunity to limit the input of material and incoming energy and to minimize waste and losses, paying attention to the prevention of negative environmental externalities and the creation of new social and territorial value.

The operators in the Antiques, Modern, Vintage and Reuse sector that supports and helps to market the products belong to a philosophy which, more and more, takes on absolute and universal value. They are interpreters of a new way of imagining virtuous products and production processes, with little impact, fair and with high social and territorial value.
