Repair

Be part of your local community’s closed loop repair movement

With our current throwaway culture, when something breaks people are much more inclined to throw it away and buy new. However, by repairing our broken items we can save money and help the environment.

Repairing instead of buying means:

– Less virgin materials used

– Less water/energy used in the production

– Less emissions and transport impacts

– Money saved for the consumer

Repairing can be done yourself if you know how to, or non-working products can be taken to numerous repair companies who can do a repair for you (this can sometimes be cheaper than buying a new one).

We’re running a series of Repair Cafes across the boroughs.  Find out more here

To help you out, we’ve created a directory below of known repair businesses based in Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge, many of which cover all of the East London boroughs.
