The Monday before Black Friday to encourage circular alternatives.

Circular Monday was founded in 2017 in Malmö, Sweden, by the circular cloth-repair start-up Repamera AB. They played “the opposite game” with Black Friday and saw the need for a day that promotes circular consumption. From 2017-2019 it was called White Monday, but changed “White” to “Circular” during 2020 to make the message of the movement more clear.

So how can you get circular in my everday life? Here are three examples:

1. Rent

Rent a hammer drill when you want to put up a shelf in your apartment. Each of those already produced drills are used only 6 minutes on average... in a lifetime.

2. Repair

When you got a flat tire on your bike, do you repair it or buy a completely new bike? That’s right, repair. Let’s do the same with electronics & clothes aswell!

3. Reuse

Have you heard of marketplaces like Ebay, where you can buy second hand? Or recycled a plastic bottle? That's reuse!
