We're on a mission to reduce the e-waste mountain of broken appliances. We want to help you repair your faulty stuff, replace your dead appliances and devices with longer-lasting models, and ensure retailers and manufacturers are making better products. Our Built to Last campaign will work to ensure fewer appliances end up as e-waste.
We'll publish resources to help you repair your faulty appliances, so you can keep using them for longer. We'll produce guides to help you maintain your appliances, report what commonly goes wrong, show you how to fix the faults, and guide you to where you can find parts, tools and expert repair services.
We'll provide advice about which appliances last longer, so you can choose brands that make durable and repairable models.
We'll challenge retailers and manufacturers to make more durable and repairable appliances, and provide spare parts at a reasonable cost. We will congratulate good brands, call out bad, and support those who try to improve.
We’re kicking off by focusing on vacuum cleaners, and we will extend our work to other appliances and technology products as the project evolves.
