Resource: Research Report: A study of attitudes to reuse
This report conducted in 2007/08 by Sheffield University reviewed the published state of knowledge regarding public attitudes to the purchase of reused and refurbished products.
Tuesday, 29th September 2009
OverviewThis report presents the findings of a review of literature and research relating to public perceptions of remanufactured, repaired and reused products. It focuses on literature from the UK, but also draws in perspectives internationally, from review activities focusing on Finland and Japan. Attention focused primarily on academic literature, but also sought out relevant industry and market research reports.
ConclusionsThe key conclusion that can clearly be drawn from this review is that existing research on public attitudes, perceptions and behaviour relating to remanufactured, repaired and reused products is inadequate for meeting the challenges of promoting such products as part of a sustainability agenda.
