This is the vanguard of a 21st century economy: reducing waste, stimulating repair and creating an alternative to the throwaway society.

 

Tournevie is an affordable and ecological alternative to more expensive rental or sales outlets for repair or home renovation.

Tournevie is an open commons. The community itself manages the tools using a set of transparent rules. Anyone can join us.
