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.
Repair Kopitiam runs as a community repair meet-up. People join us at 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.
Repair Kopitiam also brings the repair culture to your community through various means, courses and activities. Contact us for more!
