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.
And through it all Selleys products have been a trusted ‘go to’ brand in The Bower tool box to assist them in their everyday operations.
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.
