A snippet from the local newspaper led me to an event/service that might be of interest to some of you:
Repair Café: https://www.konsumentenschutz.ch/repaircafe/
These are events held in various locations where you can bring small items in need of repair and with help from a professional, gratis, hopefully learn to repair them yourself.
The idea is to promote reuse rather than increased consumption. So give your wallet and the planet a break.
For those out my way (ish), there will be a Repair Café held at the Wädenswil Freizeitanlage on 7 November: http://www.freizeitanlage-waedi.ch/v...en/repair_caf_
The list for other dates/places around Switzerland is here: https://www.konsumentenschutz.ch/rep...-repair-cafes/
