Meet Robert the Cordless Drill – Giving drills a chance
To introduce Robert, we’ll start with a fun fact, “the average drill gets used for 13 minutes in its lifetime”. That’s a waste, right? This is where Robert comes in. At the Tool Library, we make sure no one leaves Robbie in the cupboard! Our cordless drills get used in households and community projects all over Edinburgh. Last year Robert and his drilling pals did 195 visits alone. Your donation will make sure Robert keeps in great condition so he can keep up the good work.
Every ten people that borrow Robert saves the equivalent of one 100 year old tree. Want to help Robbie, the community and the planet?
