The Selleys team spent last Friday living the Selleys Brand
Purpose ‘From Task to Triumph’ by partnering with The Bower Reuse & Repair
Centre to bring DIY to life in the community. Together we experienced how Selleys
products can be used to empower communities to repair and reuse - reducing the
amount of waste going to landfill.
The Bower Reuse and Repair Centre is an
environmental charity committed to reducing landfill. Their range of services and
programs are all based on the ethos of reuse and repair to reduce the amount of
waste entering landfill and empowering communities to engage in repurposing. To
date The Bower have
saved more than 190,000 Kilograms from landfill, repaired over 2,600 items, on
sold items to more than 33,000 happy customers & helped over 270 families
though donation of furniture to charitable causes. A third of
all pieces in The Bower network end up in the House to Home network to help
furnish the homes of disadvantaged members of the community.
it all Selleys products have been a trusted ‘go to’ brand in The Bower tool box
to assist them in their everyday operations.
What we got up to at the Selleys Brand Purpose Workshops?
We had a fun filled day, stripping back
layers of paint to bring back to life the natural beauty of tables and
bedroom drawer suites. We removed dirt
and grime to expose the hidden gem of what would have been a discarded piece of
furniture and rescued a full set of dining chairs that were originally
destined for landfill.
The furniture pieces we helped restore will now go into The Bower
network where they will be rehomed. The money made will help continue to fund
and support the reuse and repair environmental efforts of The Bower.
