Marron Rouge is a major player in Upcycling and Recycling in France and designs intelligent waste management as an art of living.


After creating  the company Marron Rouge in 2009, and becoming a major player in recycling in France, setting up a manufacturing company with Indian NGOs, Jean-Marc Attia launches in the local French manufacturing with actors of the  Social and solidarity economy in the French Auvergne region Rhône-Alpes


Today Marron Rouge  implement a French manufacturing  of fashion accessories that will stage French industrialists, ESATs ( workshop for reinserted handicapped people) in the  French Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region and the know-how of Marron Rouge: the creation of design objects by recycling , Recovery and processing of waste.


One of the positive impacts will be to transform waste into a circular neighbourhood economy. Marron Rouge will continue to support Indian projects in which he has been committed over the long term.


Establish a long-term collaboration with the local ESAT * to work with recycled materials.

* Establishment and Help Service by Labour is in France is a medico-social institution of protected work, reserved for people with disabilities and aiming at their insertion or social and professional reintegration.

French manufacturers have come into direct contact with Marron Rouge to upgrade their waste and scrap and surplus production. The Lyon competitiveness cluster TECHTERA has brought together Marron Rouge and French industrialists, sometimes local, to devise design solutions for the treatment of their waste.


Mid-October 2016 a crowdfunding campaign was launched to raise € 20,000 with the ULULE platform. The sum collected was € 20,640  to :

– launch the manufacture of the first prototype bags by the ESAT in the French area Auvergne region Rhone Alpes

– create templates for models of bags and accessories

– produce a first collection for sale to the general public and the distribution network

– make a press campaign

– pay commissions and VAT on this campaign


The project has already started in early 2017 with a first production of bags and accessories in blue judo mats, which will is available since begining of March 2017.



The project could progress faster with additional funding of € 50,000:


– 7.500 € extra would be used to buy our own machine to make our prototypes and some unique pieces

– 7.500 € additional fund would improve our website

– An extra 25,000 € would allow us to hire 2 people part – time, for a first time for at least one year to boost the communication and the commercial and then turn these contracts into permanent contracts

– With 5,000 € we could call on new designers for the creation of new models


The utility of the project is divided into two essential factors:


– Environmental benefits:

.No production of raw materials for the production of our creations .Valorization of falls and surplus productions of French industrialists

. Recycling of materials

. Limited carbon footprint for production using local industrial resources, ESAT and design in the region Auvergne Rhône Alpes

. Recycling or upcycling through design


– Human and Solidarity Utility:

. Employment of people from reintegration

. Job creation in the region


Jean-Marc Attia: self-taught initially, then Director of Operations in computer groups, then L’INSEAD in Fontainebleau, followed by humanitarian missions in Africa with the International Committee of the Red Cross.

In 2008, he was thrilled and questioned, leaving him “all left”, to create Marron Rouge in 2010. Seven years later the model is local and French.

Marron Rouge sensitize students to recycling and upcycling on 31 March and 1 April 2016

Tuesday 15 March 2016

Recycling is one of the leitmotiv of Marron Rouge since the begining, you doubt it?

This is not an easy thing, even today, to understand that recycling is good for the environment and for once his wellbeing and his own ego. The preachers, not only in the field of recycling, are not generally appreciated and frankly one of the best approaches is to try to convince by showing what we can do and try to open everyone’s imagination these demonstrations.

31 March and 1 April 2016 respectively, I will be speaker  in a primary school next to Agen (France) and at a high school in Brive la Gaillarde (France).

The purpose of these interventions is to educate students to recycling by a demonstration of all the existing initiatives and everyday gestures and their meanings. Some examples :


lThe city of San Francisco, which gradually reached “zero waste”

La Villa Déchet that has been built from 25 tons of garbage of all kinds in the suburbs of Nantes (France)

La Villa Déchets situé dans l'écoquartier de la Bottière à Nantes

La villa Shamengo on the COP21 website built from recycled materials,


The valuation of restaurants waste to produce biogas

The design , and  upcycling of course there is Marron Rouge  but not only.


Blogs such as UPCYCLEDZINE or Recyclart you have all these great creators



SHOWROOM-MARRON-ROUGE-PALETTES-RECYCLEESMarron Rouge showroom made of recycled pallets

After this brief introduction workshops will be conducted to create objects from recycled materials. The objects will be created by way of example but the goal is to open creativity to demonstrate that all (or almost) can be recycled or creatively, in the true sense, either industrially.


L’intervention du 31 mars aura lieu à l’école primaire d’Estillac , à côté d’Agen auprès d’élèves de cette école. La connexion s’est faite lors de la rencontre d’une des enseignantes et à qui j’ai proposé de faire cette sensibilisation et elle a adhéré tout de suite. The 31 march 2à&- intervention will take place  to primary school Estillac, next to Agen (France) with pupils of this school. The connection is made at the meeting of teachers and to whom I proposed to this awareness and joined immediately.




L’intervention du 1er Avril aura lieu au lycée Cabanis à Brive La Gaillarde auprès d’éléves de cette école. La connexion s’est faite sur la Villa Shamengo , pendant la COP21 et une des enseignantes assistait à ma démonstration avec un pneu de voiture. The 1st Ap^ril 2à&- intervention will take place to school Cabanis to Brive La Gaillarde with students of this school. The connection was made on the Villa Shamengo during the COP21 and one of the teachers attending my demonstration with a car tire.



She asked me if I wanted to work with students of the school and of course I said yes immediately


Very happy to be a speacker for these new generations

The world of Tomorrow is on the way
