Support Norwegian repairer Henrik Huseby in his battle with Apple

We believe in the right to repair

We are people, we are repairers, we are sustainability activists, we are community.

We believe products should last longer, and therefore when broken, they should be repaired. This requires products to be designed for repair as well as support for repairers of all kinds.

The new repairability requirements adopted on October 1st by the EU Commission represents a turning point in the way we produce and use our products.

As of 2021 all TVs, monitors, fridges, freezers, washing machines, washer-dryers, dishwashers and lighting products placed on the EU market will have to meet minimum repairability requirements aimed at extending their lifetime. But this is not enough.

We are asking for the right to repair.

Who we are

We are a coalition of European organisations pushing for system change around repair.

The campaign was started by a group that includes ECOS, EEB, iFixit Europe, The Restart Project and Runder Tisch Reparatur.

We represent community repair groups, social economy actors, self repair and any citizen who would like to advocate for their right to repair.

Join the campaign as an organisation

E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Only 15-20% is recycled
50 million tonnes of e-waste are produced each year. This is equivalent to more than 4,500 Eiffel Towers
Community repair prevents waste, saves CO2 and mends hearts
