How to fix our planet
Let’s talk some rubbish. We all know we’re maxing out the world’s resources, and that reducing waste is no longer a priority – it’s an environmental imperative.
Instead of buying new stuff all the time, we at Sugru believe in using our imagination to fix, improve and reimagine the things we already have. If we can double the life of our stuff, we’ll halve what goes to landfill.
Sugru makes it easy to repair things.
We invented Sugru Mouldable Glue to inspire and enable more people to embrace the joys of fixing, making and creating. With Sugru, it’s easy to prolong the life of your stuff, and you don’t need any previous DIY experience.
So, if it’s broken, fix it. If it’s not broken, improve it. And if it doesn’t exist, make it.
"What if our planet had more fixers?" "What if our planet had more fixers?"

If it’s broken, fix it!
Everyday practical problem-solving is a beautiful form of creativity, and just a little subversive.
If it’s not broken, improve it.
A tiny tweak can transform how something works for years to come.
And if it doesn’t exist, make it.
Everyone is inherently creative—even if we don’t think we are.
Give your stuff a longer life.
In a world that’s full of waste, every fix counts.
Disposability is a choice.
When we double the life of our things, we halve what goes to landfill.
Resist needless trends and upgrades.
Fixing frees us from the tyranny of the new.
Embrace the stuff we already have.
Let’s use our imagination to keep it, use it, love it, fix it.
A fixed thing is a beautiful thing.
Every fix tells a story.
Anything can be learned by doing.
Share your ideas.
With each fix, we build a global movement for positive change.
Fixing is good.
It’s good for us, and good for the planet. So, let’s make it a way of life.
