Value: Let's face it--it's hard to escape stuff! There are some things that we need--food, weather-appropriate clothes, shoes, toiletries, appliances and more. There are also some things we want! Like on trend outfits, stylish decorations, equipment for our hobbies, and gadgets to make life easier. It's hard to say "no" to the things we want, especially when our world is designed to convince us that every want is a need. However, it's not sustainable for us to produce and consume as many items as we do, because every item has embodied carbon and externalities. It may be hard to live with less stuff total, but it could be easier to live with the same stuff for longer. I value keeping our items as long as we can, and fixing them when they're broken, instead of buying new things.
Vision: I can see a vision where clothing and item repair is a community service provided to everyone. Everyone would have access to the tools and knowledge they need to repair their own items in a way that looks good, feels good, and even saves time and money in the end!
Intervention: Just like how we can access the library for books, tool libraries could be created as a public service! Tool libraries would offer many tools, like drills and sewing machines, so that people could access tools to fix their own items instead of buying new ones. Say you need a sewing machine to fix your favorite pair of pants--you could book a sewing machine from the local community center and fix them yourself! This would also reduce consumption because people could share items instead of buying their own--a neighborhood could share three drills, instead of having one for every single household.
