Connecting low carbon initiatives across Stroud District

Description

What: Stroud Repair cafe is a monthly (last Saturday in the month) free event where the local community can take broken items and get help to repair. Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). In the place where a Repair Café is located, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need. On clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, et cetera. You’ll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields. Visitors bring their broken items from home. Together with the specialists they start making their repairs in the Repair Café. It’s an ongoing learning process. If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job. You can also get inspired at the reading table – by leafing through books on repairs and DIY.

How: The repair cafe activity has a direct impact on consumption of new items and not creating unnecessary waste. https://repaircafe.org/en/one-repair-can-prevent-24-kilos-of-co2-emissions/
