The article had originally been written as an epilogue to the book edited by B. Keirsbilck and E. Terryn, Circular Economy and Consumer Protection (Intersentia) 2019. This short essay intends to convey a simple message: in light of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, the 2015 EU document on circular economy and the exploding digitalisation it is time to wipe the slate clean and design a new consumer law from scratch. I will formulate 8 key issues which urgently call for an answer in order to conceptualise a sustainable consumer protection law.
