A label that indicates a product is designed to be fixed.
A sales and green label to show that product is of a construction standard, with available replacement parts, that can be fixed. This will come at a cost but has the ability to be endlessly serviceable. A product you can pass down the generations that has had loving use and memories.
A further standard
is the platinum fixable label which places emphasis on the parts. Parts must be off the shelf standards so repairs are not limited to a companies proprietary parts. The innovation sold is an actual intellectual difference not just a twist of shape.
This idea is brought to you by a whole number (reasonably large) and the letter l (for logic of a global set of universal product screws)

||[tumblewit] On average, we get what we pay for.
||[sninctown] Restoration is slightly different to fixing as it presupposes a period of non use. Beautiful objects, nevertheless.

products, but I don't know of any product being sold with an
