Volunteers try to fix items in a ''Repair Cafe'' where people can bring what they want to have repaired at no cost, on April 26, 2014 in Paris. Conceived of as a way to help people reduce waste, the ''Repair Cafe'' concept was developed by Martine Postma, a Dutch former journalist who came up with the idea and opened the first ''Repair Cafe'' in 2009 in Amsterdam.
