Things used to be made to last for years, and there were skilled people who could repair your toaster or electric fan for a fraction of the cost of replacing them.
Repair Café are calling on our Government to ensure:
- Things are easy to repair.
- Repair services are accessible and affordable for everyone.
- Products are designed to be repairable.
- Producers and retailers make spare parts available, so items are easy to fix.
If products are designed to be repairable and durable, and we have access to manuals and appropriate tools, we can extend the lifespan of the things we use in our day to day lives.
Please sign the petition to show your support for a right to repair and a return to a culture of repair.
