SH*T IS BROKEN

Our massive global system of consumption is broken. Our individual relationship with our stuff is broken. And in each of our homes, some stuff is broken.

LET'S FIX IT.

For seven years, the Fixup team repaired everything from chairs and lamps to a stuffed lobster. We learned that repair is an entry point for a more thoughtful relationship with our stuff, and to a culture of stewardship, maintenance, and care.

Fixation is the story of our pop-up journey, and charts a clear path for a healthier model of consumption, for individuals and businesses, and all those willing to commit to personal, social and political changes that will move us to a more sustainable and equitable circular economy.
