Over 10 million items are sent to landfill every year. A third of these – up to 3 million – could be given a second chance. It’s what members of the Reuse Network do every day.
At Refurnish Devon we are part of the Reuse Network. We’re a group of over 200 charities and social enterprises brought together by a collective belief that giving household items and furniture a second chance is better for our customers, our communities, and our environment.
We’ve helped over 1.5 million people, saving them almost £500m and helping them to live better. We’ve helped to avoid 125,000 tonnes of C02 polluting the planet
We want to celebrate the work that our network of organisations does, and to inspire more people to donate their unwanted items.
It’s why we’re participating in the #Every2ndcounts campaign.
The month-long campaign will help to awareness of the work that organisations like ours do across the UK, and celebrate the incredible contribution that our network– and our donors – make.
We will be using social media to help us share the message. You can get involved in the campaign by promoting it among your networks, encouraging those who can to contribute. Be sure to have a look at our impact calculator you can see the value of donations.
This May we want everyone to give their unwanted goods a second chance, because #Every2ndcounts.
