We offer Local Authorities and Housing Associations easy access to a range of quality assured reuse furniture and household goods from local providers, without having to go through a tendering process.
Every sofa bought from us saves…
The benefits of choosing reuse furniture
Cost savings – our quality items typically cost 20 – 60% less than new equivalents. Every sofa you buy from us saves you approximately £100 compared to the cost of buying new.
Reducing landfill and carbon emissions – contributing to your sustainability targets and a more circular economy. Every sofa you buy from us diverts approximately 40kg from going to landfill, and saves 88kg of CO2e.
Community wealth building – you will be buying from a local social enterprise, supporting training, jobs and wellbeing in your communities. Every sofa you buy from us provides vital income for a local social enterprise, paying for 4 hours of employment training or 10 food parcels.
