Le Rayon Vert
The Arpeije association helps people in situation of social and professional fragility by making easier the link with companies. The association supports them to a long-term job.
The “Rayon Vert” is a social workshop where people can repair bikes. The activity is divided in three components:
- The bikes recycling and sale to an accessible price
- The self-repair : the employees assist the bike’s owner
- The bike repair on sites, which foster the professional integration of the employees
The financial support of the PSA Foundation will allow the association to purchase some material to develop mobile repair shops, which will foster the professionalization of the beneficiaries.

"When the association Arpeije contacted me, I immediately accepted to sponsor them because I think the recycling, repair and sale of bicycles is an easy, sustainable and clever way to connect the professional inclusion and the sustainable development. Well-known in the Clamart territory, this association promotes the local inclusion thanks to the “Rayon Vert” workshop, which aims at giving a second life to many bikes."
