I just came across this Repair Manifesto on Core77 via Platform21
We all do such a good job sorting our garbage and recycling it, but even more important is taking objects that are broken and reusing them.
On that note, I hear March is mending month at Craftzine, so keep an eye out there for crafty new ways to fix things you never knew what to do with, but hate to throw away. Who knows - maybe you'll make it even better this time around. Isn't that what upcycling is all about?
