Restart Party Host Profile: Meet Rosemary
Rosemary hosts Restart Parties in West London. As an environmentalist and Friends of the Earth coordinator, repair is close to her heart. She still uses a Nokia 3410, now on its second replacement battery.
Repair is essential! Here is how we celebrated International Repair Day
“Repair is Essential” – this is the theme we chose for this year’s International Repair Day. In London, an online team of volunteers mapped 45+ repair businesses in London to be considered for inclusion. Small groups met repair businesses in Crystal Palace, Shepherd’s Bush and Tooting.
Help us expand the Repair Directory across London
The Repair Directory lists reliable repair businesses in London. We are asking the public to submit their favourite London repair shops!
Getting ready for 2020
We’re getting our calendar ready for the beginning of 2020. The first months of the year are a great time to recruit new volunteers, engage the public on the issues underpinning our throw-away economy, but also to eat cake, to share hot drinks and connect with neighbours.
Challenging throw-away products on The One Show
We appear on The One Show this evening, calling out in-built obsolescence and short product lifetimes and fixing with our community in Brixton. If you feel moved to get involved anywhere in the UK, we’re here for you.
