Webinar: Reuse in Action: Repair Fairs
April 15, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
A Repair Fair is a match-making event that pairs items needing fixed with volunteer repairers or “fixers” to attempt to repair anything from bikes to clothing, to electronics. The Carleton College Sustainability Office started hosting Repair Fairs in 2017 as a way to keep usable goods out of the landfill and to teach students and community members how to repair their items before buying new.
This session will walk through step by step how our office coordinates this event with only a budget of $200!
