Reduce . . . buy less stuff.

In Europe, each person throws out half a ton of waste per year. Manufacturing causes about one ton per person, construction about three tones and energy one ton per person. So that’s 5.5 tons of waste per person year!
In a circular economy, we aim to reuse or recycle everything. Business can still sell products for a profit but in such a way that it create no waste throughout the whole lifecycle. This is done by making products easily recycled or returnable to the manufacture for refurbishment.
