Fix it, or at least recycle its parts, don’t bin it.

Here’s a great website of a group in London, but from a movement that is spreading to and from other areas, taking experts in consumer goods who can fix them and linking them up with people who have broken goods that want them fixing.  If you have heard the phrase “planned obsolescence” then this is the counter movement.  On the website its got links to find out what happens near you and also links for alternative ways of disposing of old electronic goods if there isn’t a restart party near yourself (I’ve included the recycle locator below too).  Have a look and see the various good angles this group has got on trying to help extract the minimum out of the earth and use what we already have:
