Repair, Revive and Contribute to the Community: The Role of Repair Cafes


In this episode of Guilty Greenie, we discuss the movement toward repair culture and specifically, the impact of Repair Cafes, with guest Charlotte Bullock, one of the founding members of the Chiswick Repair Cafe. We dive into how the repair cafe offers a space to fix broken items, giving them a second life and reducing e-waste. We explore these initiatives' unexpected benefits, such as fostering community connections and improving mental health.
