We had a huge year last year, thanks to a larger team and steady funding support and our core of dedicated volunteers in London. In 2018, we look to build on last year’s work and add a couple of small new exciting projects.
Yesterday we hit some big milestones of waste and CO2 prevented, logged by Restart Party hosts across the world: five tons of electronics diverted from waste, and 100,000 kg CO2 prevented through repair.
We’re small but we’re growing to help push for better products, based on our experience helping people fix electronics in communities. Please support us to bring higher-level change
We talk to Steve Neil in his repair van and clients’ homes about his work ethic, the trials of being self-employed, and why some machines seem to break so often.
Some kinds of repair businesses are getting harder to find! We talked to Hackney Fixer James Diamond about mapping he is doing with us, for the East London Waste Authority, on repair businesses in east London.
