💻 According to a 2019 European Environmental Bureau (EEB) study, extending the lifespan of all washing machines, notebook computers, vacuum cleaners and smartphones in the European Union by just 1 year could save 4 Mt CO₂ per year by 2030. The authors of the study also considered that such a measure could have the same impact as taking 2 million cars off the roads. Whether for our offices or homes, we advise everyone to choose equipment that offers a longer lifespan and can be repaired. One of the most ecological measures, and often little publicized, is to use existing equipment for as long as possible, avoiding the emissions associated with producing a new one.
