Repair Revolution: How Fixers Are Transforming Our Throwaway Culture

We rated this book:


“We’ve only got one world, so let’s use it appropriately! Wackman and Knight have teamed up to deliver information on ways of repairing our items instead of disposing of them. In their Repair Revolution: How Fixers are Transforming Our Throwaway Culture, you will learn about a relatively new concept that is hoping to catch on throughout the nation, called Repair Cafes. In a Repair Cafe, volunteers help public citizens to fix their appliances, clothing, etc. to give it new life and to keep it away from the mysterious beyond of our trash cans. In this book, you’ll learn about everything to do with repairing, including its role in history. Historical and scientific facts help the authors drive home their points, with enjoyable illustrations throughout the pages are included as well.
I’ve always been one that cares about the environment, but I have not been up-to-date with the latest push for not even recycling, but straight to repairing. Everything in the book makes complete sense, and the authors present the information in an organized and professional manner. The information presented in the text is helpful, and the resources given at the end are credible for the reader to have no excuse for repairing an object instead of throwing it away.”
