Why should people attend a Repair Cafe?

Because the longer we repair and reuse - the less we take from the earth and discard - the longer the earth will sustain - the more time we will have to fix all the problems we created.
People should participate as a statement against the corrupted designers and manufacturers who deliberately waste products and materials - who offend and damage our earth out greed and effort to make a little surplus cash.

Kim Houghtaling, woodworking expert.
