Shift From Throwaway Living To A Circular Economy | Post COVID-19 Scenario
Return of Repair: A Possible Shift From a Use-and-Throw Culture..
All of us are in the grip and thick of the COVID-19 crisis! Most nations have been in a lockdown situation since the last couple of months! The economy has come to a screeching halt and everything is on pause mode! Most of us are struggling to keep ourselves afloat!
India, much like the west, has developed into a throwaway economy in the last one decade! Barely used resource intensive products tend to find their way in landfills! ‘Reuse’ and ‘refurbishment’ as concepts are still at a very nascent stage in our country!
However these unprecedented times will surely alter the way people buy and consume products and services! We foresee a shift from a wasteful consumerism driven economy to a more circular economy!
With lesser resources at hand, every buy will be recycled and repurposed! This will soon become a habit & will evolve into a mindset all together! We will –
- Start eliminating the unnecessary.
- Stop purchasing the latest and second question every buy.
- Select and maintain keepsakes with care.
Repairing and mending will come back in a big way to create value in the old and the familiar!
The mending mindset will become the new norm for sustainable living! COVID-19 will make fixing ‘cool’!
