“Ressourceries” are second-hand shops focused on recycling. The concept is to avoid waste by recycling things (cleaning or repairing) and to allow people to buy them for a very cheap price. These shops are many in France and in Marseille and offer a second life to clothes, home, kitchen furniture, toys… Made in Marseille tells you all about Marseille ressourceries.watch Okja movie now

Croix-Rouge Insertion (Red-Cross) – Impulse Toit

Funded in 1998, Impulse Toit aims at stopping the usual vicious circle: « with no job, no home; with no home, no job». Thus the association tries to help people having difficulties to find a home. A ressourcerie is part of its activities. It’s has four roles: collecting*, promoting, sale, and raising awareness about ecology. Impulse Toit is now part of Croix-Rouge Insertion (the Red-Cross) but still fights on the same ground..
