it takes planet Earth more than one and a half years to recover the annual consumption of natural resources by the World population.

Raw materials need to be renewed and their life-cycle prolonged, in other case by 2050 chances are we are going to need as much as 3 planets to cover the demand.

ABOUT THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY PROJECT

People use 

composite beverage cartons daily. 

 puscicapng

Every day a great number of public service employees and external visitors  

use up significant quantities of paper towels and other hygiene paper products. 

puscica-v-desnopng

Used beverage cartons (UBCs) can serve as a source for cellulose fibres suitable for 

quality hygiene paper making.

 

puscicapng

Why use hygiene paper products from primary sources when there are products available from recycled secondary raw materials which are just as good?
puscica-v-desnopng

Why not get citizens, institutions, and other companies to actively participate in the separate collection of UBCs to serve as source for their own paper consumption?

EXAMPLE OF BEST PRACTICE

We have set up a circular economy project in Novo mesto, known as the 

Municipal Material Flow Cycle of UBCs of Novo mesto

....................................

Currently 

in the city of Novo mesto 35 % of the demand 

for hygiene paper products cover citizens with their own contribution of UBCs. 

This way they are actively participating in the day-to-day 

circular economy.
