What is this commitment about? Extend the life of clothing or other items by repairing them yourself or have them repaired. This way, you not only save money, but also reduce your amount of waste.
What are 5-Minute Commitments? With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate commitment into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually get involved with people and nature in your neighborhood.
Many people can sew or repair simple things. Ask people around you if they can teach you how to do something like that next time. Maybe someone in your family can show you how to sew on a button, fix a rip in a piece of clothing, or get your record player working again. Otherwise, there are many different tutorials on YouTube that can help you with your repair projects.
Alternatively, you can also visit one of many repair cafes near you and give items a longer life.
No special requirements are needed for this commitment, except for a bit of manual dexterity.
Depending on what you're fixing, you can get this commitment done in no time.
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
