Orluna Circular Product Cycle

Circular Design

Circular design considers the ongoing cycle of raw materials, going beyond re-cycling to re-use and adopt the upcycling of products that have reached their end of lifespan.

The concept of a circular economy has been around for decades but is only now entering the mainstream as businesses and consumers alike are beginning to understand its potential benefits.

There are many advantages to circular design, including reducing waste, conserving resources, and saving money.

Recycling vs Repair & Reuse

There is nothing wrong with recycling but it is not the most efficient way to conserve resources.

Repair and reuse are much better options because they keep products in use for longer, which reduces the need for new resources.

In a circular economy, products are designed to be repaired, reused, and recycled instead of being disposed of after just a single use.

This not only conserves resources but also reduces waste and pollution.

The 3Rs of Circular Design

Circular lighting design takes into account the entire life cycle of an LED light fixture or light bulb, from manufacture to disposal.

Reduce: Use less material in the first place by designing products that last longer or can be reused.

Reuse: Repair or refurbish products instead of throwing them away.

Recycle: Recycle materials from old products to make new ones.

For this to truly happen, a product must be designed to yield the benefits of repair from it’s inception as a product.

A renewed light engine is sent out to you on the same day.

Your old light engine is returned to Orluna (in a pre-paid envelope).

Once received the fitting is dismantled, repaired and renewed with a new LED and Printed Circuit Board.

The fully repaired and tested product enters back into our stock – with a brand new warranty.
