Why did you repair the object?

It started to come apart after just one month of wearing them. Hence the name 'sad sneakers'. I was really bummed that this pair of sneakers was sold to me as sustainable and then broke after such a short time. It made me lose faith in the brand and their sustainable messaging.

What would be important to you to be included in a Repair Declaration for Ireland?

Companies need to be taking more responsibility over the products they sell and the claims they make. Green-washing needs to end.
