Podcast Chrut und Rüebli

Let’s close the circle!

How long have you had your mobile phone? If it’s longer than two years, you’re probably more of an exception.


That’s because consumerism is currently something of a one-way street: everyone constantly buys new products, and the moment they’re no longer brand new, something goes wrong or the same product is available in a new design, the latest model is acquired and the old one is thrown away.

And yet the aim should be for a “circle of life”, that is, a circular economy. Do I really need the latest iPhone or is my old one still fine? Or can I perhaps get my toaster repaired rather than simply replacing it? And how do I make sure that the raw materials can be reused at the end of its operational life?

In this episode, we explain how the circular economy works, showcase practical apps and ideas and tell you how you can play your part in this.
