The Repair Manifesto

by Andrew Price

March 5, 2009
The Dutch design collaborative Platform 21 has launched a new project to promote repairing things as an alternative to recycling them or throwing them away. See their "Repair Manifesto" below.
Over on the Platform 21 site you can also find a longer introduction to the project, an article on repairing plastic chairs, and a paean to duct dape.I'm totally on board. I love the idea of repairing things, especially for reasons 5, 7, and 10 in the manifesto above. And while duct tape is probably the star of the DIY repair world, I'm a big Gorilla Glue evangelist.Via PSFK.
