There are many reasons to consider repairing rather than tossing. Repairing items can be a learning experience, an opportunity to spend time with your family or friends, and helps keep trash from piling up in our landfills. Not to mention the sense of pride from fixing something. You can search ifixit.com for free repair guides or YouTube for how-to videos. If you can’t fix it yourself, look in your local community for someone who might be able to fix it. This could be a local repair shop but you could also do a call-out on your neighbourhood FB group for someone who might have that expertise.
