Repair is a key reuse activity that helps products to last for longer. Community repair prevents waste, saves CO2 and mends hearts.
A recent study by Oko-Institut found that repairing and keeping products televisions, smartphones, washing machines and notebooks going for longer could save 3.93 million tonnes of CO2 equivalents (CO2e) per year in Germany alone.
CRNI supports its members and works to mainstream reuse thanks to core funding provided by the EPA under the Circular Economy Programme.
