The Fix It Clinic is back! You’ve heard of thee three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle; but the favorite R is Repair!
Do you have a box of items stashed in your garage full of perfectly good items that you can’t bear to throw away because all they need is a little TLC? Before your house starts looking like it should be featured on an episode of Hoarders, grab your broken toaster, torn favorite blanket, flat bike tire, or any other repairable item and join us and our partner, The Utah Recycling Alliance, for our first Fix It Clinic!
Fix It Clinics are designed to empower participants to become better stewards of their material belongings. Participants bring in a broken item that they would like to learn how to repair (clothing, small carpentry items, small appliances, bikes, small electronics) and get to work side-by-side with an experience Repair Coach. Participants will also learn how to navigate helpful, free DYI websites, such as https://www.ifixit.com/ and https://www.instructables.com/. Tools will be provided for use; however, participants are encouraged, but not required, to bring their own tools so they can learn how to properly use them. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately for working on their selected broken item (safety glasses, glove, closed toe shoes, and work pants and shirts).
