Circular Economy – Our Success Model
In our opinion, the decision for a more sustainable life shouldn’t be hard. But in the throwaway society we live in that isn’t always the case. This is where Thingsy can help you out. Our services make it easy for you to resell, share or repair your products. In doing so you are giving your products the longest life possible and are reducing waste. Moreover, we intend to improve the quality of products in the long run. In providing vital information regarding the average lifespan, reparability and recyclability of products we assist you in making smarter purchase decisions.
What starts with the individual must continue with a bigger, systematic change. We need a shift from our current linear economy to a circular economy. In a circular economy, products and its materials are constantly being shared, repaired, recycled and reused. They literally go full circle. This helps extend the lifespan of products and resources are being used more consciously. Thingsy wants to take up a leading role in making the change to this more sustainable economy. Together with you we want to take the first step.
