The Repair Cafe movement started in 2007 in the Netherlands and has spread to over 1,400 locations worldwide. Ours is the first Repair Cafe in WA supported by the International Repair Cafe Foundation and it joins 17 other repair cafes in Australia, all of which keep in contact.
Last year alone, the international effort diverted over 250,000kg waste from landfill. Many of us in Western Australia want to contribute to this important movement and bring back a culture of repairing.
And so it goes...
Repair Cafe Perth is an incorporated not-for-profit association that is entire volunteer-run. It was started by two people, Angie and Elle, who are passionate about our environment, and has grown to include a committee, pool of dedicated volunteers at repair sessions and individuals who have contributed in various ways.
Our repair sessions are held on the third Saturday of each month from 10:30am to 12:30pm. We’d love to see you at an upcoming session!
