How is Lafuma committed to repairing your products for life?

Lafuma is committed to offering a lifetime repair service for your products in order to promote sustainability and reduce environmental impact. Repairing instead of replacing helps preserve natural resources and reduce waste. Here's how their repair service works, which products can be repaired, how their workshop works and some tutorials to help you make your own repairs.

How can repairing a product reduce its environmental impact?

In a world of over-consumption and waste, product repair plays a crucial role in reducing environmental impact. When we repair a product rather than throwing it away and buying a new one, we reduce the demand for new resources needed to manufacture these new products. This means less extraction of raw materials, less industrial production, and therefore less pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

According to a study by Goodloop and Lafuma, repairing a jacket reduces its environmental impact by 44%. This means that repairing a single jacket saves the equivalent of 10 liters of water, 0.2 kg of CO2 and 2 grams of waste.

What's more, repair reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill. Electronic products, for example, often contain toxic substances that can contaminate soil and water if not properly treated. By repairing and reusing these products, we help to reduce electronic waste and protect our environment.

Finally, repair promotes a circular economy where products are designed to be repaired, reused and recycled. This encourages companies to produce more durable goods, and encourages consumers to adopt more responsible and sustainable behaviors.
