The European Commission invites citizens and organisations to give feedback on their plans to stimulate repair and reuse. The Commission has put several ideas on paper. It now wants to know whether they match the views and wishes of the European public.
With these plans the Commission wants to encourage consumers to have broken items repaired more often and also to buy repaired items more often. It also wants to encourage producers to design products that last longer and are easy to repair. It wants to discourage unsustainable consumption. In this way, the Commission wants to contribute to constructing a circular economy.
