The paper deals with a circular economy as a way of sustainable production and consumption. The introductory part describes the basic features of circular and linear economics as well as their differences. The linear economy is based on the principle of "exploit - produce – discard". The aim of the circular economy is to preserve the value of products and materials for as long as possible, to minimize waste and to conserve natural resources. The paper presents examples of good practice of business entities and self-governments whose activities are in accordance with the principles of the circular economy.
