Repair Cafe On RTE One

Our collaboration with Make Create Innovate & Fingal Makerspace was covered on a show called “Heated” RTE One on Thursday, November 16th. You can watch it back on the RTE player episode four.


“This episode looks into the potential of repair cafés – community gathering places where people can bring their broken items, such as appliances, clothing, bicycles, or electronics, to be repaired by skilled volunteers for free, thereby promoting sustainability and reducing waste by encouraging people to repair and reuse their belongings instead of throwing them away.”

It was great to have so many of our members featured and showcase what Repair Cafes are and the benefits they bring to the wider community.

Tog Hackerspace Thanks IADT for Sustainable Electronics Boost

We’re excited to share some fantastic news with you! Tog Hackerspace has recently received a generous donation of used electronic equipment from our friends at IADT. Their commitment to sustainability aligns perfectly with our values, and we’re thrilled to integrate these resources into our community space.

Sustainability in Action: A Circular Economy at Tog

Thanks to IADT’s thoughtful contribution, our electronics lab and Monday open nights are now equipped with additional tools and gadgets for members and the public to explore. This not only enhances our collaborative learning environment but also promotes the principles of a circular economy by giving used electronics a second chance at usefulness.

Join the Movement: Donate, Don’t Discard

IADT’s donation isn’t just a boost for us—it’s a nod to the importance of responsible electronics disposal. We invite other organisations to follow suit. If you have electronics nearing the end of their life, consider reaching out to us. Let’s work together to extend the life of these resources and contribute to a more sustainable future.

See the Impact: Photos from the Donation

In closing, a big thank you to IADT for their support. We’re excited about the possibilities these donated electronics bring to our community. If you or your organisation have equipment to contribute, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Let’s continue building a sustainable and collaborative future together.
