    Clinic Trains Consumers To Fix What They Already Bought (And Broke)

    She has sponsored a bill – that will soon come up for a vote – which encourages companies to provide consumers with tools, parts and instructions so they can fix their things when they break instead of buying new ones.

    “We want to really try to encourage people to keep things out of the landfill and actually work on fixing them, and see if we can keep that thing in circulation and use for a long period of time. It’s good for people’s budgets and also for the environment” Brianna says.

    Titone doesn’t know how many of her colleagues will support the bill because she fears outside lobbyists have been trying to sway the vote in favor of preserving planned obsolescence.
