This association repairs home appliances to give them a new life

Giving home appliances a second life. That’s what this French association is doing to prevent waste. And thanks to them, over 3,000 products found a new home in 2019. Brut nature took a tour of their workshops. Here is how it works.

    Absolutely great. Should be more of this recycling around the world. Unfortunately we live in a throw away world. We desperately need to re-educate ourselves for future generations

    How I wish we have this practice in Malaysia. Consumerism has been built in such a way that it is cheaper to buy a new one than repairing it.

    My husband has a 20yr old Dell tower which parts can still be sourced from USA and sometimes here in Australia.

    Unfortunately many companies do not make parts available in North America. We do not have the same laws here that Europe has requiring manufactures to make parts available and machines repairable. Here, the thinking is if your not replacing you machine within 5-10 years (most machines planned obsolescence) they will be out of business. It's all about selling units. No sales, no business. World needs a complete rethinking of consumerism.

    It's nothing new in eastern Europe. We repeared used home electric appliancies (usually brought from western Europe) for decades, because people had no money to buy new ones !
