Climate change will stop by the new rules. 

Climate change causes our 'throwaway culture,' and new rules arrive to stop them. 

Climate change largely depends on our throwaway culture, which a cycle comprising buying a particular product, use it for a while, and then wasted to dumping stations. 

The officials confirm this new rule will apply to a series of daily utilities like batteries, construction, electronics, mobile phones, packaging, and textiles. 

According to these new rules, manufacturers will make durable products and easy to repair when any damage occurs. 

That means you have to use your mobile phone longer than now as you can fix this. If any problem in the battery and the display occurs, it can have it mended by the repairer without buying a new one. 

The rules are the result of the Right to Repair, a worldwide movement. As a result of this movement, many repair workshops by the citizens have been established in the UK.   

Although the plan inaugurated by the European Commission, it is a milestone for the UK too to achieve as BREXIT separates the EU and the UK.    

If the EU enacts the new rules and Britain does not, then the manufacturers might have a chance to sell low-quality products only in Britain. It does not sound right. 

The proposal is quite ambitious

The activists of the green group consider this enactment of the new rules as the most comprehensive and ambitious one. Because they never had any significant achievement like this in earlier times. It is a significant step to fight with the consequences, followed by the things we wear and use. 

Environmentally-friendly products will not be a bookish word anymore; it will be a reality. A brief example of how this will happen is- manufacturer will use screws instead of glue so that the repair process gets lots more comfortable.  

"Premature obsolescence" is malpractice by the manufacturers. They built low-quality products with less lifespan forcing the consumer to buy the latest edition. The EU is willing to give them an incentive so that they get inspiration to stop producing the less qualified products and ensure their longevity. 
The European Environment Bureau (EEB) is one of the green groups. It said, "The strategy is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the way we manufacture, use and dispose of our products in a way that benefits people and the planet."

They urge the high bench politicians in Europe to make plans fruitful by enacting them as early as possible. 


The EU is also willing to see less food waste, over-packaging, and microplastic pollution. The Circular Economy Action Plan is some recommendations under the proposal. They are-

  • Products should have recycled content within them on large scale 
  • They should reduce their impacts on the environment and climate
  • Manufacturers themselves will bear the cost of repair throughout the products' life span.  

The EEB also claims that the package should go further in setting strict targets for the industries and businesses so that they prevent waste and lessen power usage across Europe.
