We’re excited about our first Repair Cafe at Bend’s new makerspace, DIYcave!

Join the Rethink Waste Project for our Summer Repair Cafe at DIYcave! There will be volunteer fixers on hand to repair your items, for free!

Items to bring include:
-small appliances
-items needing sewing repair, including clothes and outdoor gear (no alterations please)
-metal items that can be repaired through welding (NEW!)
-light jewelry repair
-small furniture and household items

A Repair Cafe connects people with broken stuff, with people that like to fix stuff. Repairing instead of replacing prevents waste and saves resources. Doing it with other people makes it fun and cultivates community!

Art of Recycling, Rethink Waste Community Youth Art Project

See the culmination of different youth groups and classrooms’ work as they repurposed discarded, leftover and trash items into a community reclaimed art project to encourage people to Rethink Waste. The Art of Recycling has been on display throughout Central Oregon and is now available for schools, businesses and organizations to set up temporarily to highlight their waste reduction efforts. Contact us to borrow this display!
