Our Approach to a Circular Economy for Carpet Cleaning
What is Circular Economy?
Circular economy is an economic system aimed at creating a closed loop that helps in eliminating waste and maintaining the continual use of resources and in turn, helps in reducing carbon emissions.
When it comes to carpet cleaning, a circular economy involves three phases:
Why has a Circular Economy become more important than ever?
Every Year, Germany has around 1.6 million tonnes of carpet waste, a majority of which is either burnt (incinerated) or dumped in a landfill.
When carpets are burned they release a substantial amount of GHGs in the form of fossil CO2.
Landfilling on the other hand increases GHG emissions by less than 100 pounds eCO2, a huge impact to the environment, nonetheless.
A major problem lies in the fact that Individuals keep repurchasing carpets and throwing them away, contributing hugely to piling of waste, instead of getting them cleaned and reusing them.
This method contributes to waste and carbon emissions, leading to climate change and increasing carbon footprints, all root causes of global warming.
Although, fear not, it’s never too late to begin anew in making the earth a healthier and safer place to live in, as well as protecting your family from the repercussions of bad health.
