Repair

Don’t despair – just repair! 

With our current throwaway, consumerism society – when something breaks people are much more inclined to throw it away and buy new. However, by repairing your broken items you 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 by yourself if you know how to, or be taken to numerous repair companies who can do it for you (this can sometimes be cheaper than buying a new one).

To help you out, we’ve created a directory below of known repair businesses based in Newham, Barking and Dagenham, Redbridge and Havering.
