Repurpose For Good

Repurpose For Good is our unifying initiative that drives all our activities aimed at reducing waste and repurposing goods for social and environmental benefit. Under this banner, we partner with a variety of community groups and businesses to gather items that might otherwise go to waste. Our goal is to ensure these goods find a new purpose, providing much-needed support to individuals and families in need.

Through the repurposing and redistribution of unused and unsold goods, we have redistributed over 1.7 million tonnes of essentials to people in need all over the world. Our journey over the last ten years has been one of growth and commitment to a more sustainable future. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are on a mission to bring together businesses and communities uniting them under the banner of repurposing and reducing waste - for good!

Transforming Communities for a Greener Future

Our Repurpose For Good initiative is a call to action for anyone who wants to be part of a meaningful change. We're inviting businesses, individuals, and communities to unite and drive transformation on both an environmental and social level; turning surplus into support.

More than just diverting waste

The Repurpose For Good initiative goes beyond diverting waste; it's a holistic approach that aims to make a significant impact on our global climate goals by reducing CO2 emissions. By encouraging responsible redistribution of goods and waste reduction, we're minimising the burden on our landfills as well as taking a crucial step toward a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future. Every act of repurposing is a step in the right direction, contributing to the collective effort to combat climate change and protect our planet for future generations.

Landfills should be a last resort

By diverting items from the waste stream and giving them a second life, we play a crucial part in reducing the burden on landfills while fostering a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to the goods we use and consume. Our work is a vital step toward a greener and cleaner future.

Be the change you want to see

Our commitment is to create a lasting impact and ensure that sustainable practices become an integral part of our collective effort to protect the environment. If you're interested in learning more about how we can collaborate and make a difference together, get in touch.

Since the charity started in 2014 we've saved over 43 million tonnes of CO2 emissions - that's the equivalent to taking approximately 9.4 million cars off the road for a year! We've done this by providing an equitable and transparent platform for British retailers and manufacturers to donate their unsold, surplus goods, returns and quality seconds, while providing those in need with the resources they need to thrive. Your excess inventory can find new purpose and create positive change; helping those in crisis and protecting our planet for future generations.
