REUSEMED survey shows that the majority of educated young people in Sakiet Ezzit (Tunisia) already buy second-hand goods



Almost all educated young people in the Tunisian municipality of Sakiet Ezzit are already buying second-hand goods, especially clothing, but also furniture and computer equipment. This fact, which proves the interest of educated youth in reuse, is one of the most relevant results of the survey conducted in the context of the REUSEMED project in the city.

Conducted on a sample of 382 educated young people, the research proves that the main triggers for second-hand buyers are the good quality and price of the items of interest.  In addition, more than 80% of the respondents stated that they also donate or sell used products.

Finally, more than three quarters of the young people surveyed live in private homes with a garden and prefer to have individual or collective organic waste composter and sorting bins.

REUSEMED proposes to create municipal networks based on reuse circuits for home appliances, furniture, books, clothes, Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment and food. To set up the networks, 4 cities in Spain, Italy, Jordan and Tunisia will design and test composting installations, food collection points in markets, repair and reuse centers, reuse corners in shops and repairing cafes.
