Starting new year with Repairably

We are back to share with you our progress and the news from the Repair movement. Last year we started to explore our surroundings and the moods in regard to our mission, and we have seen we are not alone and on the right way. So this year, we are going to have a lot of work to do! We are slowly but safely getting closer to our mission. Have a look... 

Repairably has got its new seat in Budka 22!

Budka 22 is a beautiful, natural material based and zero waste concept building run by Green Foundation, that hosts companies and organizations with common sustainability and societal goals. Its creative environment provides an ideal seat for our growing team. 

Our team was invited to participate in the November issue of the Pechtle-Mechtle events to talk about repairability principles in design. Pechtle-Mechtle is a community of creative and open minded design students based on the Faculty of Architecture, STU in Bratislava, Slovakia. 
We had the opportunity to explain our Repairably mission to students of The Atelier Industrial Dizajn at the Slovak Academy of Arts. Thanks to Mr. F. Chrenka, lead professor and famous designer for support and to all students for their interest. We hope their creativity will connect with Repairably principles to become a Repairably design. 
Our big testing day! This January, Repairably team was testing multiple function workout construction OCTAGO with help of YHP dielňa to meet our repairable demands. Many thanks to our testers for their help, energy and good mood! 
With every little step, Repairably is closer to make a change.
We have started a new rubric in our blog- Talking Repairably, where our supporters- designers share with us their thoughts, experiences and suggestions. Have a look here. You can also follow new issues on our Facebook page. 

The European parliament suggest a voluntary EU label to inform consumers sbout the product's durability, eco-design features, upgradeability and reparability. (Here we are, Europe!)

Its recommendations include: robust, easily repairable and good quality products, boosting repairs and second-hand sales
spare parts made available “at a price commensurate with the nature and life-time of the product”and others. 

The most famous mobile phone and IT brand Apple is investigated by France for planned obsolescence.

This concept has been talked about for a long time, but France has been the first country to set up a legal consequence, demanding the manufacturers to display how long their appliances will last. 

Short of joining our team, or designing and making repairably products, donation is the best way how you can support repairably.

Repairably is a non profit organisation, eligible for 2% of tax donations from Slovakia tax residents.
