The Repair Stop offers an affordable drop off service to repair household goods from phones and electronics to clothes, textiles and small items of furniture. The Desktop Distribution Project refurbishes computers from Glasgow City Council and distributes them to vulnerable people across the city.
Remade Network is building a repair economy through working collaboratively with community groups on the ground. This means setting up repair and reuse social enterprises that help people fix their household items, learn new skills in fixing things, and refurbish donated items in order to set up further projects, save things from landfill, and redistribute them to people who need them.
What are your hopes for a Scottish Degrowth Network? I would like to see a Network that has real power to build a movement that shifts Scotland to being led by communities’ interests over corporate interests – one that shares good practice, and supports good discussion and the work of individual members.
