In 2022, there are about 2,500 Repair Cafés worldwide, where volunteer experts help repair old items that people bring in, keeping them out of landfills and saving people money.


About 80% of the things brought in can be fixed. Some of the cafes are located in low-income areas. Most cafes ask users to contact them ahead of time to check if it's something they can try to fix or not. Some cafes recommend parts to buy and bring in, while others maintain an inventory of parts that users can buy.
