Do you have a broken household item? A toaster that stopped working? Broken lamp? Instead of buying a new one, come to the Westside Repair Café and get it fixed for free. Why? Because it’s good for the environment. It reduces unnecessary consumerism, helps preserve resources, reduces waste, reduces carbon emissions and other pollutants involved in extraction, manufacturing and transportation of goods, and it saves you money! Volunteer too if you can.
