Electronic waste is the fastest growing waste stream in Europe. While recycling is important, we intervene before disposal – inspiring people to buy for longevity and to divert electronics from waste.
Through community and workplace events we create engaging opportunities to extend the lifespan of electronics and electrical equipment. We spread our message through public speaking.
Our community repair events are called “Restart Parties”, and people across the world are replicating them with our advice.
Registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), the organisation is a “social startup” trading to sustain itself and to expand its impact.
The Restart Project has been recognised as Talk Talk Digital Heroes, and by the Nominet Trust 100, London Sustainable Development Commission, Transition Network, Unltd, Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme and featured on BBC, CNN, The Telegraph and other international media.
