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.
