Great for recycle and environmental themes.

Every day we buy products that are designed to break.
Manufacturers are making it increasingly difficult and expensive to repair our electronic gadgets and replace key parts like a cracked screen or a weak battery.
By reducing the lifespan of a product they may drive sales, but this comes at the expense of citizens and the planet.
The world is not prepared to deal with the increasing amounts of potentially toxic electronic waste. Dumpsites are overflowing. Recyclers can’t keep up. The United Nations warned of a major threat to the planet and human health.
We’re depleting the world of finite resources to buy things that are meant to become waste. Things we could repair or upgrade instead.
Governments can change this – with our help
The European Commission has proposed rules for manufacturers to make our gadgets and home appliances more durable and easily repairable.
The proposed laws would require that products can be disassembled and reassembled again with designs that allow an easy access to the parts that could break. They would also require manufacturers to make replacement parts, instructions and tools available, while special provisions would improve durability and recycling.
People have had enough. 77 percent of EU consumers would rather repair their goods than buy new ones (Eurobarometer 2014).
From the US to Europe, we are reclaiming our right to repair. We demand easy access to information, spare parts and repair tools. We want a better product design that makes repair possible at a reasonable price.
For now, the EU proposals mostly concern dishwashers, washing machines, fridges, lights, TVs, displays and servers. But campaigners say that this can be the beginning of a new era for product design – one that truly cares for people and the planet.
