An estimated 50 million litres, of the 320 million litres of paint sold in the UK each year, goes to waste. The paint is either thrown away at landfill, or stored in homes/garages, despite over 50% of it still being usable.
Community RePaint is a UK wide paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that aims to collect this leftover paint and redistribute it to benefit individuals, families, communities and charities in need at an affordable cost.
The paint helps local groups and charities refresh shared spaces and create colourful murals for the community, and enables people on low income to redecorate their homes at low cost.
The Community Furniture Store, just off James Street, have recently become members of Community RePaint.
So If you are part of a community group working on a project, or you are an individual wanting to spruce up your home for little cost, go and see them!
