FYI: Repair Café

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:

The list for other dates/places around Switzerland is here:

I didn't see it on the list, but our local event (Glarus Süd) also takes place on November 7:
