Help make disposable culture a thing of the past
You might often wonder, is it worth fixing a broken electrical appliance or should I just get rid of it? This is because sometimes, repairing electrical appliances is cheaper than repairing them.
This problem is also known as planned obsolescence. From the moment it is produced, each product has an expiry date or planned shelf life and once this time is up, it is no longer usable.
A new regulation approved by the European Union will force manufacturers to keep spare parts in stock for years following the sale of an electrical appliance to guarantee the right to repair.
Its aim is threefold:
- Fight against planned obsolescence.
- Reduce the environmental impact.
- Avoid an additional cost for citizens.
It aims to extend the useful life of these appliances; and by deciding not to throw them away, we avoid new ones being manufactured in their place. Breaking this vicious cycle of disposable consumption that has a daily impact on sustainability is vital.
The importance of being able to repair an electrical appliance essential in reducing the new waste we generate and reducing the emission of tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
