Love Your Stuff and Party ahead of Waste Less Live More Week, running 22-28 September
If your toaster has made it to the ripe old age of 10 and you feel like celebrating then this could be the event for you. Ahead of Waste Less Live More Week, the team behind sugru, a hand mouldable glue invented to get people fixing and repairing things, is throwing a party for your best loved stuff.
Head down to Hackney’s Look Mum No Hands venue on Wednesday 17 September from 7pm with your favourite household item and get it engraved / illustrated with the date you bought it so you can celebrate it growing old with you. There’ll even be a fix it station for beloved items on the brink.
sugru’s inventor, Jane ni Dhulchaointigh will be taking along her Henry Hoover on the night: “People seem really excited about the event, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what turns up! We designed sugru to be easy to use in the hope that it might encourage people not only to reduce waste but to feel more confident and creative about fixing and improving things. We hear shocking stats about waste and landfill all the time so I suppose this night is a fun way of encouraging people to try and keep their things for longer.”
The event, in collaboration with Keep Britain Tidy, is free for all who sign up at loveyourstuff.sugru.com
