Happy International Repair Day everybody!
This year, it’s brilliant to see lots of us are able to come together in person to celebrate the day. But there are still lots of online events going on. Find a list of events here.
With COP-26 coming up in Glasgow, we’re focusing on the climate benefits of repair with the theme: repair lowers carbon emissions. By fixing our broken belongings, we make the most of what we already have and reduce the need to manufacture new products.
Did you know that extending the lifetime mobile phones in Europe by five years
would save 5.5 million tonnes of emissions (CO2e) annually by 2030 - the equivalent to taking 3 million cars off the roads for a year (source: EEB)
You can find plenty of shareable goodies for social media and beyond here: https://openrepair.org/repair-day/
How are you celebrating the day? Is there anything you’re going to fix?
