Outdoor retailer Decathlon has launched a new sustainability initiative aimed at recycling, repairing and reusing equipment to give products a second life.

The Decathlon Second Life collection, which will include tents along with other equipment, will be available to purchase in store and online.

Every Second Life product is refurbished by a team of expert technicians and undergoes a rigorous condition rating process before being assigned a grade from A to D.

The grading system will be used to assign a price to each product.

Grade A products will be have a 10% discount while Grade D will be sold at a40% discount.

Decathlon said it hoped to save 40,000kg of CO2 in 12 months through the scheme.

Nick Connell, project leader of the Decathlon Second Life project in the UK, said: “Our planet is worth protecting and we all need to accelerate in taking action to reduce our environmental impact.

“As a business with big production demands we have to act now. By recycling, repairing and reusing products we’re adding another key action to our wider sustainability project.”
