French government launches a "repair bonus" scheme for clothes and shoes in an effort to cut waste

The French throw away 700,000 tons of clothes every year. A heresy for the Secretary of State in charge of Ecology, Bérangère Couillard, who specifies that two thirds "end up in landfills ". To encourage customers to have their clothes or shoes repaired rather than buying new ones, she indicated on Tuesday that a bonus for the "repair" of textile goods must be put in place "from October " . "From October, consumers will be able to be accompanied in the repair of their clothes and shoes" , explained Bérangère Couillard during a visit to Paris of the premises of an incubator dedicated to responsible fashion, La Caserne. This "repair bonus" for the textile sector will be endowed with a fund of 154 million euros over the period 2023-2028, the office of the Secretary of State had previously explained to AFP https://www.tf1info.fr/conso/le-gouvernement-lance-un-bonus-reparation-pour-les-vetements-et-les-chaussures-2263305.html
