The growth of an unsustainable throw-away culture has been encouraged by mass consumerism and the rise of short-lived and disposable products. Fortunately, more people are not only showing interest in sustainable brands and products but also choose to maintain and repair existing products when they wear out.
Looking after and maintaining outdoor gear has been a core part of the Primus philosophy since it was founded in 1892. The company aims to help every outdoor adventurer keep their stoves in top condition by supplying instructions and spare parts. Until March 31st this year, it is offering this service completely free of charge.
Across all of its product development, the engineering and design team consider even the smallest details carefully. This attention to detail is showcased across the range by the carefully selected materials and limited number of components. Primus believes ‘it´s better to repair than replace’ and offers spare parts not only for current models but also for selected older stoves.
It’s only natural for certain parts to wear out over time – a jet nipple gets lost on a trip or a screw thread becomes damaged. For this reason, all Primus stoves are designed so that cleaning, maintenance or repairs can be done very easily at home.
This eliminates the need to dispose of the stove for a minor reason and ensures that the stoves can be used by their owners for a lifetime of trips outdoors. Extending the life of existing products has a substantial positive impact on the climate and the environment.
If a Primus stove needs a part replaced because it has worn out, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with a detailed description of the problem. Together with a picture or a short video, add your address and phone number.
If the stove and requested part meet the campaign parameters, the company will ship you the part for free. Hurry up – this offer is valid until March 31st 2021.
