OUR MISSION

Making the world repairably better.
Certifying products that are designed for simple repair.

Our earth faces enermous enviromental challenges. To cope with them, one simple step, that we can take together is to require that products we use are repairable. Repairability is one of the pillars of the circular economy.

Repairably certifies products that are designed for simple and affordable repair. Repairably strives for less waste and better future by encouraging design, manufacture and use of truly repairable products

Any repairably certified product is guaranteed to be practically repairable. And this makes lots of sense.

  • Whenever any part of your repairably product breaks, your loss is no more than 20% of the product value.

  • You can keep using and repairing things you love. Anything made repairably will serve many years longer.

  • Instead of throwing things away, you can sell, give or donate them as they will be easy to repair.

  • Last but not least, repairably makes common sense. It is the right way the products should be made.
