Sustainability Tip of the Week: The Fourth R

Event Type(s): Other

We all know Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. But can we add another R: Repair? Times have changed from repairing what we have, to buying something new instead. The waste generated and money spent can be avoided if we give "Repair" a try. Next time you have a broken item, whether it's a toaster or a printer, try to repair it first. Try to fix it yourself by downloading a guide from www.ifixit.com or as a handy friend to help you.
