Repair Your Stuff

Try to buy things that are repairable and high quality instead of things that might be cheap and considered disposable when they break. Take your stuff that breaks or is damaged and get it repaired. Some things you can repair yourself, such as a hole in your shirt that can be sewed up. Or, order a new part and replace it yourself or take it to a repair shop and pay a professional to repair it. Shoes, for example, you can easily replace the bottom sole, inside cushion, and laces and keep using them. Repair your furniture, appliances, electronics, etc. Even if it is not cheap to repair something, it should at least be cheaper than buying a new one, and you have conserved the resources it takes to produce a new product. Replacing a part on a product takes less of the earth’s resources than building the whole product.
