The head of the Ergolain furniture factory, Povilas Grakauskas, shares some of the ideas that the Ergolain company is currently developing concerning sustainability and the circular economy.
‘Sometimes spinning in a circle is more beneficial than moving forwards alone without looking back or sideways. It is on this principle of the rotation that the circular economy is based,’ Says P.Grakauskas. The module of linear economy is based on ‘take, produce, throw away’. Circular economy, on the other hand, invites to ‘sustainably design, repair, use, reuse, recycle or pass on’. Many companies operating in the Šauliai region have already implemented several circular economy principles. Even a few separate elements and small changes have defined their projects and activities as friendly to the environment.
