Eco mobilier.

A very interesting Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program from France. Every year, a 4-person family throws away about 100 kg of furniture
i.e. about 1.7 million tonnes per year. In 2009 more than 50% of furniture waste and 100% of waste mattresses ended up in landfills. See a report in English here:
