New economy

As we keep producing and consuming ever-increasing quantities of “stuff,” a growing number of people are asking: Can we create an economy that values common interests, public health and the quality of our lives, over growth at any cost?

We should be able to fix our stuff when it breaks. We need easy access to the information, tools, resources and third party repair shops it takes to fix our cell phones, appliances, electronics and other equipment. That means working together to get the companies who make our stuff, to give us the right to repair our stuff. When they do, it will be better for the planet, better for our budgets, and things will work the way they are supposed to.

REPORT: ‘Stranded’ shows how new Colorado wheelchair Right to Repair law is essential

On June 2, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed the landmark HB22-1031, Consumer Right To Repair Powered Wheelchairs, which requires manufacturers of powered wheelchairs to provide access to parts, tools and information necessary to repair wheelchairs to owners and independent technicians. “Stranded,” a new report from U.S. PIRG Education Fund, finds a constrained market for wheelchair service and repair in the U.S. makes delays, of weeks or even months, common.
