Afflelou and Cofidis, a French consumer-credit company that provided tablets to the optical group's stores, have partnered with the NGO WeTechCare for the recycling of the no-longer used devices. Afflelou is aiming to collect 700 tablets throughout its stores network, which will then be checked and reinitialized by Cofidis before they are handed over to the association. WeTechCare is part of the large French Emmaüs association and works against digital exclusion, providing digital equipment and initial training to people who cannot afford them.
