The 6th R: Cultivating a Culture of Repair

Friday, August 7, 2020

Repair Café events are an empowering response to throw-away society, re-creating a culture that values reuse and repair over disposal. In two Vermont communities, Repair Cafés tap into locals’ knowledge to reduce waste by fixing broken or damaged items that would otherwise be thrown away. This recorded webinar will explore the Repair Café model, lessons learned, community partnerships, nuts and bolts of hosting a repair event, and the broader context of the right to repair movement.

Join the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, your recycling nonprofit, for this webinar to discuss these issues. Ollie Cultrara is the former Waste Diversion Program Assistant and ECO AmeriCorps member at the Addison County Solid Waste District in Middlebury, Vermont. Cassandra Hemenway is the Outreach Manager of the Central VT Solid Waste District.
