We have a complicated and often unhealthy relationship with our stuff. We have begun to realize that the things we eat affect our environment, our health, and our happiness. The same is true of the things we bring into our home. Sandra Goldmark uses her experience repairing hundreds of household objects as a lens into how we can rethink our habits of overconsumption and waste. In her approachable and energetic style, she will leave the audience the tools and the passion to take their first steps towards repairing our broken system of consumption.
