What is the circular economy? We explain EVERYTHING to you and especially how it affects us.
The official definition is:
The circular economy is about producing goods and services in a sustainable way by limiting the consumption and waste of resources and the production of waste. It is about moving from a throwaway society to a more circular economic model.

This model appeared in the 1970s with the objective of, on the one hand, a better longevity of products, and on the other hand, a decrease in their impact on the environment. The circular economy is therefore based on 3 areas: supply, demand and waste management. The strategy sought is simple. We expect economic actors to be eco-responsible in their production and operations. On the other hand, consumers are asked to buy in a thoughtful way, as opposed to over-consumption. The cycle ends with a systematic recycling of waste. Below is a diagram to visualize the model.
Participating in the circular economy is not as complicated as it seems, most likely without even realizing it, you are already participating. For example, if you carpool, you reduce fuel consumption and prioritize use over possession. Similarly, if you buy products with a French (NF) or European (EE) eco-label, you are responsibly buying eco-designed products.
At Ouikeep Auto Parts, we are committed to being part of this economy. Our activity allows us to give a second life to automotive parts that without us would not have one. Indeed, we recover benches, seats, rear decks, or even belts, from the transformation of vehicles by some body shops in order to accompany you in the development projects of your vehicles. In addition, we make sure that our packaging comes from recovery.
These are gestures like buying one of our products that allow the construction of a better future and a better planet. Every gesture counts, so don't wait any longer, follow the movement of the 4 'R's: Reduce your consumption, Extend the life of your products, Recycle as best as possible, Start again!
