Our lives have become crowded with things. Many of which we don’t even really use or just don’t fulfil their purpose anymore. The yoghurt maker you bought before you discovered you were lactose intolerant. The lava lamp you intended to return but just can’t find the receipt anymore. The selfie stick you don’t know how to dispose of properly, and frankly are a little too embarrassed to ask anyone about. The leaf blower you got for Christmas from your now ex-girlfriend that has just too many memories attached to it.
Trust us, we’ve all been there. We know those kinds of situations all too well (ok, maybe not the one with the leaf blower). At the same time, we became aware of the grave effects overconsumption and fast-moving consumer goods have on our environment. With Thingsy we want to offer a solution to what might seem like mundane problems, but which can have an immense impact on our planet.
Thingsy helps to sensitise people to the problems of the throwaway society and offers services so that we can easily repair, share, resell and recycle our electrical appliances. Electrical appliances should not be seen as disposable products, but as durable consumer goods that are valued more.
With the help of this economical rethinking towards a circular economy, we want to free the earth from increasing greenhouse gases, waste of raw materials, water pollution and overfilled landfills. But we can’t do it with Thingsy alone. For that we need you.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT & PARTNERSHIPS
Philipp loves good smoothies. He usually makes them at his home in Zurich with his dearly beloved smoothie maker that has a very special place on his kitchen counter and in his heart. On a fateful day the machine started making unheard of noises and soon after it started fuming. But Philipp simply refused to get rid of his smoothie maker.

Looking for answers to the question, if sustainable consumption exists, Cristiana dipped into the circular economy and came across Thingsy. She was immediately enthusiastic about his concept – now her goal is to convince everyone else.
Circular economy has been on Tim’s mind for a long time. He took the first step in this direction a few years ago with biodegradable backpacks. Now, with Thingsy, Tim also wants to make the lifetime of electrical appliances circular.
Peter has seen first-hand the effects of the linear economy in the suburbs of San Diego, where every family fills a big bin every week. Switzerland is a little better, but there is still a lot to do.
Being part of a company that creates a circular economy for products is very important to Peter.
