When our stuff breaks, it’s more than just annoying. It creates unnecessary waste that’s wreaking havoc on our planet. What’s more, manufacturers are withholding the parts, tools, and software that we need to fix everything from our cell phones to our refrigerators.


The Right to Repair Act would require manufacturers to make repair manuals, spare parts and other repair materials available to you and repair businesses. This would lower the cost for consumers and reduce toxic electronic waste.
