Repair cafes
We throw away vast amounts of stuff-even things with almost nothing wrong, and which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair. The trouble is, lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill quickly lost. Repair cafes are now spreading around the world to help you learn these basic skills again. Check if there's one near you and if not, maybe you can start one? www.repaircafe.org
