Fight for your right to repair

Sometimes reducing e-waste is as simple as not upgrading to a newer model, if what you've already got works perfectly fine. Other times a repair or component replacement is all it takes to keep a device in use for longer.

iFixit is a global electronic repair community, fighting e-waste by providing people with thousands of how-to guides and tools to fix, and ultimately save their tech from being thrown away.

 "Some companies have this planned obsolescence mentality and their business model is built around selling you sh*t that’s gonna break soon, and we’re disrupting that model as best we can." - Kyle Wiens, co-founder of iFixit.
