Project Highlight Fix It Fair With Kimberley/Cranbrook Youth Climate Corps, Wildsight
Have you heard about Fix It Fair held by the Kimberley/Cranbrook Youth Climate Corps crew?
Ripped pants, flat bike tires, a vacuum cleaner…these are just some of the items repaired by generous local volunteers at a Fix It Fair held by the Kimberley/Cranbrook Youth Climate Corps crew. Attendees left the event with their mended objects in hand, smiles on their faces, and, most importantly, the knowledge that they were keeping household items out of the landfill.
The event held in Kimberley on August 14th built connections within our community to promote sustainability. Indeed, the action of repairing contributes to a circular economy, as it allows us to extend the life of objects while slowing down our use of resources and lowering emissions of greenhouse gases
“Hosting the Fix It Fair taught us that almost anything can be fixed with a little time, some elbow grease, and a bit of knowledge and creativity."
