The Buy-and-Throw-Away culture is prevalent in our society. For a wobble of a chair, or a tear on our jeans, we tend to simply discard them away. While it is easy to discard or perhaps recycle, we can still salvage the product by repairing it. In engaging in repair, not only is one able to hone his technical skills, he or she will find the value in objects as wells as learn valuable lessons in the process of repairing such as perseverance, discipline and patience.
Inspired by Repair Cafes of Europe, Repair Kopitiam runs as a community repair meet-up, where people come down to a designated space to repair simple items such as broken electrical appliances, torn clothes, wobbly chairs and even engage in responsible e-waste disposal together, guided by volunteer Repair Coaches. This project is powered by Sustainable Living Lab with the support of South-West Community Development Council and the National Environment Agency.
This time round, Repair Kopitiam is coming back on 23rd August, at Jurong West Ave 1, Blk 425. Come down, bring broken items that you have, and experience the magic of Repair for yourself!
