It is no secret that nowadays we are used to buying more than we need, nor that we often hardly ever use the items that made us pull out our credit cards when we saw them on display. However, our society is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of recycling and reusing objects that would otherwise have ended up as waste even if they were in perfect condition.
Com Nou has a business model based on the circular economy. It is a shop located in Andorra la Vella that sells second-hand clothes and sports equipment in perfect condition. In this way, its customers, as well as acquiring top quality products at an affordable price, are helping to reduce pollution.
Specifically, they have all kinds of equipment for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, as well as warm clothing, sports and mountain footwear, backpacks, bags, bicycles and scooters, among other things. It is worth mentioning that some of the material is even unused.
More benefits of the circular economy
The circular economy model encourages the design of products that are environmentally friendly, as well as promoting the reuse of what we have already bought. It also allows companies to invest in the development of consumption strategies that are sustainable in the long term in homes and in raising awareness among citizens so that they become actively involved in complying with the 3Rs: recycle, reuse and reduce.
It is therefore an excellent practice to be able to respond to society's needs and, at the same time, respect the planet's environment. In addition, dependence on other countries would be reduced, the impact on the climate would be reduced and the purchasing power of families would increase.
This model of consumption is totally different from the most commonly used one: the linear one, based on the concept of single-use. Not only does it require an enormous amount of materials and energy, but it is also part of the model of planned obsolescence, which is about items that are purposely designed to fail in a short time or to become obsolete in a short space of time.
