Rosine Ingabire and Morgane Thomas have just created HexEco, the first 100% sport recycling center in Toulouse to support the ecological transition.
Rosine Ingabire and Morgane Thomas hit it off in a gym in Toulouse. “For the record, this gym had to get rid of these old ones. I asked to collect them for the fitness club of my company, ”says Morgane. This is how she found herself, with Rosine, transporting them in the metro to a dozen stations ”.
And without knowing it, the two friends were writing the beginnings of their 100% sports recycling. Both driven by eco-responsible, sporting, collective and respectful values
(“Of oneself and of the environment”) and with a local impact, Rosine and Morgane were then passionate about the launch of this concept. “I had heard about the sports recycling center in Massy, in the Paris region and I found it very interesting to offer second-hand sports equipment”, adds Rosine. And especially in Toulouse, this offer does not exist. Rosine and Morgane will be keen to put the circular economy and sustainable development at the heart of this sports project. During a brainstorming evening, the two sportswomen, helped by their friends, find the name of their association. It will be Hex-Eco, “because we are convinced that we are all equal when it comes to environmental issues. With us, we will find second-hand sports items from collections. What will be reusable will be sold in stores at solidarity prices. Objects in less good condition will be diverted into works of art, or used in creative workshops with children, with the aim of conveying the environmental message ”, continues Morgane.
Also if your cupboards are overflowing with balls, rackets, tracksuits, veloces, dumbbells,… “anything related to sport near or far”, do not hesitate to contact Hex-Eco “who will make them play extra time”.
Today, Rosine and Morgane are looking for a place to continue their project. A good listener …
