Blick: Ms. Blum, what is the circular economy?
Nicola Blum:
There are different definitions. One that has prevailed is based on three points: to recycle products at the highest level for as long as possible, to avoid waste and to regenerate nature. The basic premise is that our materials are finite and we will eventually run out. It is therefore a matter of thinking about the life cycle of products, but also the systems behind them, in such a way that materials and products live as “endlessly” as possible.

And how do you achieve that?
One approach is to think about whether it is better to share products than to own them. It’s called the sharing economy. There’s already quite a bit in this country, but other countries are way ahead of us.
