Tech pack services Carla offers and more...

Carla is an enthusiastic, decisive, and talented senior womenswear fashion designer in San Francisco with over a decade of experience. A successful designer with a quirky nature, passion for responsible manufacturing. She wrote a nice article that compares a linear economy to a circular economy. She supports circular economies?

"A circular economy aims to close the gap, creating a closed-loop system of restorative and regenerative design with the core intention of designing out waste. It does this by following the cycles of the natural ecosystem, replacing the end-of-life concept. Closing the loop is more than just recycling, it changes the way in which value is viewed, created, and preserved."

Whereas a linear economy is "referred to as “take, make, waste”. Raw natural resources are taken, transformed into products, and disposed of, losing the value that they possess. Value is created in this economic system by producing and selling as many products as possible."
