The Circular Movement is a multi-sectoral initiative that brings together people and organizations committed to spread the concept of the Circular Economy. We seek to guide how to make the transition from a linear to a circular economy. Our tools are education and culture, encouraging the sustainable development of new processes, products and attitudes to live in a society without garbage. Let's create together a world without waste!

All that is good lasts a long time and in the end it can still become something new.
In addition to being economical, it is sustainable. It means less garbage in the landfill.
Upgrading is only good for those who sell things. Be rebellious.
Fixing is smart. Things last longer and the money stays in your pocket.

Muti is the mascot of the Circular Movement. He personifies the movement, carrying its attributes. The name itself comes from its ability to change and renew itself all the time. Muti is a nickname for 'Mutant'.
This curious, direct, adventurous, and provocative being explores galaxies, systems, and constellations in search of planets full of life and potential. Upon arriving here on Earth, it brought us his MUTI-IDEAS, so that we too can get our hands dirty and build, together, through education, a way of living that only brings and leaves good things. Avoiding waste and turning trash into a new resource is essential and VERY MUTI COOL!

The Circular Movement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Circular Economy guarantees the achievement of several goals linked to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The optimization of the use of natural resources, through new ways of producing, consuming and disposing, proposed by the Circular Economy, contributes to the achievement of at least 12 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, defined by the United Nations (UN). We act directly on SDG 12, which proposes "ensuring sustainable production and consumption patterns" by 2030, but building a more circular economy still contributes to the fulfillment of SDGs 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17.
