Together with our strategic partners we develop electronic reuse platforms that open up new opportunities to scale up and accelerate the transition towards a circular economy of electronics. Our partners are international groups that promote social awareness about the social and environmental impact of electronics, social economy, Zero Waste, reduction of Digital Divide, circular economy, Social Economy, Fair Electronics, the right to repair, and technological partners providing services to our members.
Zero Waste Europe
ZWE brings together and represents the European municipalities that have openly committed to the goal of
continuously reducing waste generation and improving waste separate collection and hence redesigning the relationship between people and waste. We are defining a campaign for municipalities with the objective of to increase the number of municipalities willing to promote the circular economy of digital devices. With the help of ZWE we want to find interested municipalities, local zero waste organizations willing to launch local reuse circuits and social reuse centers that repair, refurbish and retail second hand used digital devices.
The Restart Project helps people learn how to repair their broken electronics, and rethink how they consume them in the first place. They run regular Restart Parties where people teach each other how to repair their broken and slow devices – from tablets to toasters, from iPhones to headphones. To facilitate eReuse use by citizens we have developed a prototype of the eReuse.org workbench module to be executed in a USB.
