Repair Café

Repair Café Map of the world

What to do with a broken chair or a toaster that throws sparks? What to do with a pullover with wholes in it? Toss it? No Way!

You go to the Repair Café! 🙂

There you can repair stuff yourself with professional help at your side while you sip a coffee and chat with nice people!

Take a look at it:

Happy old year!

Wandkalender von 1991 mit Stempel "2019 - Happy old year"

© rethink-recycle.netDon’t throw old calendars away. Every 28 years you can reuse them, because the day-date-combination repeats itself in exactly the same way!

You could keep them and give them to your kids when they are grown up. I bet they would love that! 🙂

How about some new branch hangers for your clothes?

Wake up!

Stop the crazyness of throwing away everything!

You don’t always need everything what advertising tells you to buy! Don’t buy things because you want them, buy them only because you really need them and decrease your trash!

There are better ways to be happy than through the consumption of things you don’t even need… 😉

Utopia shows 15 way to decrease your trash (in german)!
