Fixing things isn’t just about tackling waste. Sure it helps - if we double the life of our stuff, we halve what goes to landfill. But fixing also nurtures our curiosity and inspires us to try new things. It forces us to put perfection to one side and concentrate on everyday practical problem solving, the most beautiful form of creativity there is.
