Amsterdam Attempts to Change Culture With Repair Cafes

In the Netherlands, a total of thirty groups have started Repair Cafes. People get together and pool their skills while working a few hours a month to mend holey clothing and revivify old coffee makers, broken lamps, vacuum cleaners and toasters, as well as at least one electric organ, a washing machine and an orange juice press.

Amsterdam’s Repair Cafes encourages people to bring old items that they might have otherwise thrown out to have them restored by expert volunteers.
