Santa Monica Hosts 2nd Repair Café
November 10, 2014
If it’s broke, fix it! Come to the City of Santa Monica’s Repair Café at 1450 Ocean on Saturday, December 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to learn how to fix common household items. Experienced volunteers, known as “Fixers” will be there to offer their expertise.
Hosted by the Resource Recovery & Recycling Division, the Repair Café will focus on repair and reuse as part of our Zero Waste Strategic Plan.We throw away an incredible amount of stuff everyday - but imagine extending the life of your items at little to no cost! Saving used items from landfills is key to reducing our waste.
Bring torn clothes, books, broken furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, computers, and toys. The Repair Café Fixers are experienced electricians, seamstresses, carpenters, and more. They will offer instruction, tools and materials to fix what you need repaired.
This event brings together 1450 Ocean’s Free Craft Lounge, where all are invited to work on craft projects, and our biannual Repair Cafe, which brings together community experts with those seeking to learn how to repair common household items.
