Why I’m Offering Free Repairs On My Creations
YES! The rumours are true. Your eyes don’t deceive you. And there isn’t a glitch on my website. So why have I decided to offer free repairs on my creations?
Over the last 3 years of being in business, I’ve felt like a hypocrite.
Here’s what I mean:
On one hand, as a product lead creative business, I ask you to buy my creations. And as an environmentalist, I ask you to stop consuming.
So there you have my internal dilemma. I’ve felt like I was getting pulled apart at the core.
It’s not felt right asking you to buy more when the world is facing enormous environmental issues.
So in May. I decided to rethink the direction of where I wanted my creative journey to go.
I took a long hard look at my brand, my business and my life. And dissected every area to figure out what I wanted to focus on.
The Truth Slaps Me in My Face
After a few weeks of spilling my guts out in my journal and being brutally honest with myself.
I admitted that I was tiptoeing around the reasons I started this adventure in the first place.
Why? Because I was afraid. I was afraid that I didn’t have all the answers to being a sustainable business/ brand/human. And everything contradicts itself! So I felt like a fraud!
So I stripped it back to the bare basics. I got super clear. And it came down to this:
I want to Create. Save the planet. And inspire others to do the same.
Lucky for me the creating part was easy. I had that one figured out. But up-cycling was only the start to saving the planet. This process is great. Because it produces one-of-a-kind creations and diverts stuff heading to landfills. This ticked two main boxes for me.
The thing that was tripping me up was the end of the life-cycle for each creation.
What happens to this creation when you don’t want it anymore. Or if it breaks.
And that’s when I had a brain fart 🤯
Free Repairs For Life For ALL One By Me For You Creations!
I’m super excited about this. And where this journey will take us!
I’m 110% confident in my ability to make my creations. But as you know, no matter how well anything’s made. Over time everything will break. And because I make everything myself I sure as hell know how to fix🛠️it!
But what if you wanna de-clutter?
Your styles changed, the kids have grown or you’re moving countries. Well, I have a solution for that too! It’s called Trade-Ins.
You can trade in your One By Me For You creation for a 20% discount to use the next time you buy something from me.
Depending on the condition of the creation it’ll either be re-sold or be re-upcycled.
So nothing gets thrown away and nothing goes to landfills! YAY🎉! (Cue the fireworks🎆🎆🎆! And hear the sigh of relief!)
Inspiring and Teaching Others.
This is something that I get a kick out of doing too! Nothing makes me happier when I see others doing more of what makes them happy. And simply enjoying life. I understand how hard it is to slow down and navigate living a more sustainably. Looking for answers and hitting more roadblocks imaginable. It’s overwhelming.
So I’m planning to share more blog posts on everything I uncover. From how to repair and look after your stuff, to creatively reduce waste, to apps to help us buy better products and other helpful resources that’ll help make the transition easier.
Because I believe that together we can divert more stuff heading to landfills. We can stop the Throw Away Culture that has become the norm for us. And we can make the change we want to see in the world.
And if there’s anything you’d like to learn to repair? Email me and I’ll try and find the answer for you 🙂
