Fixing Our Throwaway Economy

Hello! How is repairing and reuse possible when the throwaway culture is so deeply rooted in our economy? 

The Fixing Factory is a new project with a fresh approach that not only makes repair and reuse a reality, it’s also applying lateral thinking so electronic ‘waste’ can benefit local communities in as many ways as is possible. 

In this episode of Copy This, Fiona Dear of The Restart Project and Emma Beal of West London Waste Authority describe The Fixing Factory’s drive to not only give electronic waste a new lease of life, but to use it to level the digital playing field, train the fixers of the future, provide employment opportunities and create a project blueprint that could be replicated around the UK.
