When household gadgets break or clothes get torn, it's tempting to thrown them away and go straight out to buy new ones.
But in Argentina, volunteers are offering their skills to give a new lease of life to everything from shoes and coats to umbrellas and printers – all in the name of sustainability.

"Repair has to do with caring for the planet, and valuing the resources that are already in things."
