Consumer NZ Right to Repair Petition

Consumer NZ have launched a petition with the same demands of the petition presented in July to to Minister Parker by Repair Café Aotearoa New Zealand.

They say: Unrepairable products cost you and the planet, and we are the only country in the OECD without e-waste regulations. That’s why we’re calling for a product repairability label. If we can shop based on how long products will last and how repairable they are, manufacturers and retailers will be forced to lift their game.

Repair Café Aotearoa New Zealand now have an open letter which asks Ministers Parker and Clark to bring in bring in ‘right to repair’ measures so it’s easier and cheaper for New Zealanders to get items repaired. CTA is one of the organisations that has signed this letter (on page 6).
