Right to Repair

At Scavenger Labs we are firm believers in the right to repair the things you own. This could be clothes, computers, shoes, phones, or any household objects. However, as things get more disposable it seems we start to prioritise short term cost over durability. Here are some of the projects and campaigns we think are fighting against this flow.

Restart Campaign

The restart campaign is a great source of information for legislation and other factors around the right to repair.

Repair Cafes

Repair Cafes can happen in different ways but one way is to sign up the the European network at https://repaircafe.org Some of our friends in Manchester run them regularly and they made this video on how to get up and running.

One of the best ways to make a difference in this area is to support small local and community focused businesses that repair, recycle and refurbish. Here are some we recommend.
