Following the launch last December of the European Commission's Circular Economy Package, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) is looking at how the EU can now work to reduce its consumption of natural resources and keep the existing ones in the economy for as long as possible.
The EEB says that this doesn't just mean more recycling, but prioritising repair and remanufacturing of products, which is crucial for creating jobs, saving costs for industry and cutting waste.
