The Europazon project hopes to officially launch its website at the end of June 2022. It calls on European manufacturers and traders to ensure the success of this ethical platform.
What if Amazon’s competitor was French? Europazon, launched from Médoc in Gironde, is an idea that sprouted during the imprisonment, even though Amazon forced itself on everyone and broke sales and profit records.

According to Europazon, the concept is just as attractive to consumers who “will be able to buy the same types of products as in other foreign markets (Amazon, Rakuten or Alibaba express): decorations, bedding, household appliances, furniture and high-tech … Made in France guarantee , Made in Europe or renovation and at the best price. “
“By buying a product, you buy the world that belongs to it.”
“E-commerce has become an essential tool of the European economy, let’s not let American or Chinese giants take over the sector!” Said Xavier Mahieu, co-founder of Europazon. “The choice of Made in France, Made in Europe and refurbished products will allow you to significantly reduce your carbon footprint and therefore take concrete action on the environment and climate change.” also produces nearby? Better consumption also means knowing that by buying a product you are buying the world that belongs to it. “
It is from Gironda that resistance to the Amazon is organized. It remains to be seen how experts and consumers will accept it. Start of response at the end of June at Europazon.
