Since its establishment, the society has been conducting various activities to establish a direct relationship between ecologically and socially fair producers and prosumers in different regions of Turkey, and to establish a sustainable, circular, and fair economy. Today, within the scope of the society’s impact, there are over 400 producers and more than 20,000 prosumers. Through https://turetimekonomisi.org/ you can reach the website.
