Despite some progress in recent years, it’s no secret that lawmakers still haven’t done enough to make repair accessible to everybody. We’re still some way from the universal Right to Repair that we need to empower us to fix our own devices, slow the stream of e-waste and reduce the upstream impacts of consumer products.
So, we’ve worked with some of our European partners on a list of demands to…
- create financial incentives to repair
- require manufacturers to extend the lifespan (and repairability) of their products
- teach repair in schools.
If that all sounds good to you too, please add your name to this list of demands and help us build our case:
