A new wave of "repairing" started 10 years ago, when the first Repair Café was organized in 2009 in Amsterdam

We throw away household items, clothing and many more things far too often, even though they could be (easily) repaired! Repair Cafés fight that trend by bringing people together to learn how to repair things. This saves you money and helps conserve the rare resources of our planet. There are already 1.500 Repair Cafés worldwide.
