Consumption, waste generation and resource depletion are significant issues concerning the world today. In response to these problems, the Repair Cafe Foundation was created in order to encourage people to fix their broken items instead of throwing them away. This project determined the desirability and feasibility of hosting repair cafés on university campuses by identifying what makes existing repair cafes successful and soliciting opinions of students and staff at our model university, the University of Worcester. With the help of Katy Boom, our sponsor and Director of Sustainability at the University, we developed recommendations to the University of Worcester as well as any others interested in hosting a repair cafe on campus.
