The Circular Economy came to give a new meaning to the way companies design products and face residues. It can also be a great ally in reducing marine litter generation. Although such concept is not an end in itself, as there are other environmental subjects to be weighted and quantified, it represents a remarkable gain in consciousness so we can rethink the life cycle of products and service in a broad sense.
Different metrics to build a circularity index are being discussed and tested, like the one proposed by World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). And LCA, doubtless, contributes to quantify the benefits and advantages of a circular economy and a well-thought-out product system.
Circular Economy and LCA walk side by side, complementing each other.
