Process and impact

Ecomanif SA, under the impetus of its dynamic and inspiring Director, Gilles Marmy, wanted to review the deposit system for reusable tableware. How could its use be made more accessible and less restrictive? How to encourage the return of washable crockery in a positive way?

The Fabrique Circulaire first supported Ecomanif SA by organizing a brainstorming workshop inspired by the Design Thinking method. This process enabled us to assess users' needs during an immersion phase. Then, during an ideation phase, innovative solutions were developed to solve the problems raised by users.

Secondly, the most relevant solutions were translated into concrete avenues to be explored. La Fabrique Circulaire assessed the relevance, interest and maturity of stakeholders with regard to these solutions.

La Fabrique Circulaire's work enabled us to take stock of the market and highlight opportunities for collaboration. As a result, Ecomanif SA now has all the information it needs to launch pilot projects in the near future.

The next steps envisaged by Ecomanif SA are to set up collaborative projects with other players in the Vaud region (notably in the catering, home delivery and events sectors) to support the environmental cause by continuing to democratize the deposit.
