Why host a Restart Party?

Repair increases the lifespan of electronics, reducing the strain on materials, energy and labour

Let’s fix our relationship with electronics

Fixing our relationship with electronics is going to require massive change on a global scale. Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in many countries. The pace of our consumption has real social and environmental costs.

While recycling is important, we must intervene before disposal – encouraging consumers to buy for longevity and diverting electronics from “end of life”.

We believe we must make change we seek and cannot just wait for greener or more ethical gadgets to appear. We need to roll up our sleeves, repair what we have, and start a better relationship with our electronics. That’s what a Restart Party is all about.
