We're consuming too fast, creating unnecessary waste and feeling frustrated

Let's fix our relationship with electronics

Get Involved

The Restart Project is a London-based social enterprise that encourages and empowers people to use their electronics longer in order to reduce waste.

We help people learn to repair their own electronics in community events and in workplaces, and speak publicly about repair and resilience.

Upcoming Events

You're invited to a Restart Party! Come to one of our fun and free community repair events where our volunteers will help you learn to repair broken or slow devices.

Parties pop up all over the place, from pubs to community centres, even in Parliament! They’re a great chance to make new friends and enjoy a fun atmosphere while helping to save our electronics from the growing mountain of e-waste.
