The Restart Project aims for a global shift towards a more sustainable and happier relationship with electronics.
We hosted our first Restart Party in a north London pub in June 2012. Since then, together with people from Montreal to Leicester to Milan, our growing network has helped more than 21,000 people extend the life of their gadgets, and prevented over 33,000 kg of unnecessary waste.
In 2021, the first Right to Repair measures came into law in the UK for a limited number of appliances — and we’ve been keeping up the pressure for the government to expand them to mobiles, tablets and laptops. And in response to overwhelming need during the pandemic, we mobilised to help super-charge laptop reuse efforts in London, creating the Laptop Repair Team and donating funds to partners.
