Newer technology products are often being engineered for disposal rather than repair and reuse. This is a disturbing trend that hurts the economy and the environment. All AFTRR members are committed to responsible reuse and that’s why we’re proud of our affiliation with the Repair Association (Repair.org).
The Repair Association, previously the Digital Right to Repair Coalition, was formed in 2013. The Association represents everyone involved in repair of technology — from DIY hobbyists and independent repair technicians, to nonprofit refurbishers like AFTRR and the aftermarket.
