Calling all eco and money conscience community members!!! On Thursday, May 25th at the Vancouver Community Library check out The Repair Cafe.
From 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm, you can do your part to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save money. The Repair Cafe is your opportunity to have a broken item fixed by skilled volunteers, or learn how to fix it yourself.
Items that can be repaired at the cafe include small appliances, electronics, lamps, fans, jewelry, clean clothing or textiles that need mending or tools/knives that need sharpening. Please check out the website for a complete list.
Attendees are encouraged to bring replacement parts (i.e. cords, zippers) specific to their broken item or replacement parts may be available for sale at a low cost.
You must be present during the repair. There are no guarantees an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more.
Limit one item per person, small enough to be carried easily by one person.
Please be considerate and do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline or have a strong odor.
About The Repair Café
Repair Cafés are free community events where skilled ‘fixers’ volunteer to lend their skills to residents who bring in their broken items for repair. The goal of the events is to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources, save money and share skills throughout the community.
