Fixing the World One Device at a Time iFixit is a free, publicly editable repair manual with a mission to empower people to fix their stuff and save money while keeping electronics out of landfills. Most people want to fix what’s broken; they just lack the resources to do so. iFixit’s specialized tools and free, step-by-step repair manuals minimize the barrier to repair — even for beginners. ENVIRONMENTAL Electronics are resource-intensive to make and hazardous to dispose of; repair extends the life of electronics.

SOCIAL iFixit’s half-million registered users answer repair questions, contribute repair guides, and support other like-minded fixers.

ECONOMIC According to iFixit their repair manuals have sparked hundreds of independent repair businesses around the world.

E-waste is one of the fastest-growing components in the global waste stream. Americans alone throw away over 300 million electronics every year. iFixit writes and hosts repair manuals for everything from computers to cars, so people around the world have the instructions they need to fix what they own, instead of throwing things away. Why a Sustainia100 solution? Last year, iFixit served 29.5 million people across 106 countries, helping to extend the life of electronic devices and spreading the message of repair, reuse, and responsible consumerism.

Developed in USA

Deployed in 90+ countries worldwide, including Poland, Germany, USA, Brazil, India, Thailand, Taiwan, Mexico, and Egypt
