While grabbing my usual morning Chai Tea Latte at Bend Mountain Coffee this morning I realized an opportunity to share the Repair Cafe. Gordon, owner and barista extraordinaire of the coffee shop asked me what projects Re-think Waste was working on. I was ecstatic to tell him of the Repair Cafe. Awesomely enough he was ready to discuss his broken toaster with me. You know the little knob you push on each time you want to set the bread to be heated, one of those had broken on his toaster. He had fashioned a small metal sleeve that worked in lieu of the knob, however, he was hoping to get this permanently fixed to the lever as it easily slipped on and off. Could there be a better project for the master crafts persons of the Repair Cafe? Gordon hurriedly scribbled the date on his calendar and pledge he and his toaster would see me there. Please join Gordon of Bend Mountain Coffee and many others for an evening of collaborative problem solving April 3rd, from 6-8pm at Pakit Liquidators.
