Repair Cafe September 17, 2017

What do you do when you've got something you like but it no longer works? Throw it out and buy a new one? Stick it in the attic, the basement or under the stairs? Pay to get it fixed? Fix it yourself? Chances are you toss it out. Or maybe you store it away until that magical day when you can figure out what to do with it.... right.

There's another solution: bring it to one of the local Westside Repair Cafes.  They will be running a "mini Cafe" this Sunday at the Mar Vista Farmer's Market from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. offering knife sharpening, small appliance repairs and sewing/mending tasks.  

The Westside Repair Cafe is a volunteer-run, community service dedicated to encouraging the repair and reuse of goods rather than relegating them to landfills. It's an extension of Our Time Bank's Sharing Economy program to further support sustainable living solutions.

How does it work? What can you bring? Do you need to register ahead of time? How can you volunteer? Stop by the Green Tent this Sunday and get all your questions answered.
