Repair your electricals
Wear and tear is normal, but throwing away almost-functional devices shouldn't be. Help keep electronics in circulation for as long as possible, while saving vital resources.
There are a number of local Repair Cafes run by Oxfordshire's Community Action Groups, who can help you repair a small electrical item, rather than buying new.
When you do buy, say no to cheap, breakable stuff. Support companies that make quality products. It’s worth it to spend a bit more on a product that will last three times longer.
