Using circular economy principles in device design
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has created a roadmap to guide electronics designers down the path of repair- and recycling-friendly devices.
How will my product be used? How can it be kept in use? These are the questions designers should consider early on, according to recent research. To support designers in considering these questions in their creative process, a team from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation built on the findings of both the Circular Design Guide and ResCoM to create the Circular Strategies Framework.
This framework identified five circular strategies for consumer electronics. Each strategy reflects a specific approach that can maximise the utility of a product, whether performed by the user of the product or by technicians.
