Long live to our objects
Have you already had the following impression? This object occupies a lot of place, it is often in the way, it would be a pity to throw it but it is no longer saleable… Or do you like object that have a soul? What you no longer use may be useful to someone else.
This helps to:
- Reduce waste and CO2 emissions from combustion
- Prevent the exploitation of natural resources and energy expenditure to produce a new object
- Make someone happy
- Gaining space
Do you want to increase the life of your objects? Sell them to the flea market, on the internet platforms like eBay, Ricardo or Amazon. If you want to donate them, take them to the Barter’s house (Tauschhaus), to humanitarian organization or second hand dealers. A reflection that is worthwhile too: the sharing of certain objects or tools. Take a look at sharely.com for example.

In Switzerland, the waste of resources is enormous: In 2014, 426 kg of household waste per capita was discarded, with a growing trend. The Swiss are champions in waste production in the OECD Ranking, occupying the 5th place!
Recycling is very important but it is not enough to reduce garbage piles and to preserve the climate. Less waste means less transport and less combustion in an incinerator, which releases CO2 and other pollutants.
If you want to reduce the amount of waste, think of others before throwing and object.
