I am keen to bring Green Mantras of ‘Re-pair, Re-cycle and Re-sell’ in the Economic mainstream! In this post, I wish to share some of my ideas with you.
But before that, here is a brief background of why such an initiative is required.
All right-thinking people would agree that wasting is bad. This is especially true when the world is reeling under the twin crises of ‘Shortages’ and ‘Waste Mismanagement’.
However, ways of giving a ‘longer life or a respectable after-life’ to products, are not as readily available, specifically to the residents of UAE. Either they are difficult to locate or pin-point or are economically unattractive.
I am sharing a gist of some such ideas, with a view to network with those who have similar inclination and are willing to work with me in this direction.
- Providing an online communication platform for ‘owners of to-be-repaired goods’ (residential or commercial) on one hand and ‘Repair service providers’ on the other
- Similar model to promote recycling of goods (including recycling and composting)
- Online Flea market (facilitating existing models of business to complete greater number of transactions)
Looking forward to hearing from you,
