Need it fixed? Rodeo City Repair Cafe can help

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but if it is, take it to the Rodeo City Repair Cafe. This is a nonprofit community event where people can meet up and work to fix their broken items. Everyone and anyone is welcome, and volunteers are available to help you fix your things.

“We are really just like your neighbors next door,” said Rodeo City Board President Don Shriner. “Back when I was growing up we had a guy on the block, and all the kids would hang out and get their bicycles worked on, and now that we’re old, we have become those people.”

South King Tool Library wins Green Globe award for waste reduction

When it comes to waste reduction, the South King Tool Library is setting the standard in King County, asking: why buy when you could borrow?

The South King Tool Library, 1700 S. 340th Place in Federal Way, won a Green Globe award as the leader in waste reduction and was honored by King County Executive Dow Constantine on Earth Day, April 21.

The South King Tool Library provides access to tools and training in order to help residents maintain their homes and neighborhoods, build community and reduce unnecessary consumption among households of all forms — including low-income residents and under-served populations, according to King County.
