Repair Café Sheridan
Reduce, reuse and recycle…plus repair! Recycling is not the solution. Repairing is a better option. If you have a broken household item and don’t know what to do with it, instead of throwing it out, consider to bring it to Sheridan’s next Repair Café.
Sheridan is the first higher education institution in Canada hosting a Repair Café on campus. At the Repair Café, you can receive help on fixing your broken item, anything from computers and electronics to small appliances and clothes. Fixers, or volunteers who are skilled at doing repairs, not only help visitors fix their items but also show them how they do the repairs. This is a free event and everyone is welcome to participate.
Since its launch in April 2014, Sheridan has hosted seven Repair Cafés, all receiving very positive responses from the community.
If you would like to volunteer as a fixer or to help out at the events, please fill out an online volunteer form or contact Wai Chu Cheng, Sustainability Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
