Since we just got started with registering products, you’ll find mostly electronical devices in our database. But don’t worry if your product hasn’t already been registered yet. You can just take a photo of the receipt and Thingsy will scan all the necessary product information and add it to your wallet.

The manufacture of products is energy and raw material intensive. Energy consumption in the non-use phase (production, logistics and disposal) is often higher than in the use phase. For example, 50-70% of the CO2 emitted in the life of a smartphone occurs in the non-use phase. By extending the useful life, the footprint of products can be improved.
By making it easy to repair, share, donate or lend, Thingsy makes an important contribution to extending the useful life of products.
We have big ideas and a lot of projects in the pipeline. We are keeping you updated on our social media channels!
