Remade event in Edinburgh this Saturday

For the last year or so, we’ve been working with Remade in Edinburgh, a community repair and reuse project that walked away with the public vote at last October's Pitch Pledge Party event.

The project has been running free weekly repair sessions for textiles, laptops and furniture, and recently inspired us to run a worldwide Remade campaign of our own.

Remade in Edinburgh started as part of south Edinburgh’s Transition group, but now (partly thanks to the support of the 10:10 community) it’s strong enough to set up as a standalone organisation.

They’re holding a special event this Saturday (9 June) to celebrate everything that’s happened so far, and launch the next phase of the project. And you’re invited!

Remade Month, our take on an idea developed in Brixton and Edinburgh, focused on sharing tips and resources around the 10:10 community to make our favourite things last longer, saving the extra cash and carbon that comes with having to replace things as soon as they go wrong.

But don't worry if you missed anything first time round – we've put together a quick roundup of the best bits from Remade Month. Here goes...
