The twin abilities to repair and recycle products are deeply intertwined: unrepairable products are often also unrecyclable. In this panel, we’ll consider the role of Right-to-Repair and recycling practices in environmental sustainability and the Circular Economy. We’ll here from Right-to-Repair advocates, waste management leaders, and grassroots community workers holding Repair Cafes and building tool libraries to help and teach others to care for their goods. Ultimately, we’ll work to answer the question: how do we create a more repairable, recyclable, and sustainable future?
