We throw away a lot of stuff! Even things that need a simple repair. Let’s change that narrative! Join us during Waste Reduction Week at our second Repair Café and fix your items.
We’ll provide tools, materials and volunteers to help you repair your – lamp, bike, jewellery, sweater tear and more.
Repair Cafés teach us to see our possessions in a new light. And to, once again, appreciate their value. Repair Cafés help change people’s mindset and empower them to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle, connect with community and reduce the amount of repairable items sent to landfill.
We are seeking skilled volunteer fixers! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to dedicate your skills to a great cause.
