The Reuse Consortium is pleased to welcome on board a new member, Transition Stirling, and a new Local Authority buyer, Stirling Council, who will be working in partnership to provide sustainable reuse furniture for Stirling Council properties.

The Consortium has been pleased to work closely with Stirling Council to support its ambition to use reuse furniture to furnish some of its properties.

Transition Stirling, which ‘aims to provide a positive response to and secure our community’s future from the effects of climate change, through advancing citizenship, raising awareness and encouraging action’ joined the Consortium to help support Stirling Council’s ambition, and will supply furniture through the Consortium’s Scotland Excel programme.

We look forward to successful trading in the year ahead as we progress this pilot. 

We are also delighted to announce that we now have eight local authorities buying from the Consortium as well as Link Housing Association in Edinburgh, one of the largest social landlords in Scotland.

The Consortium also ran a short pilot in Glasgow with Glasgow Caledonian University which has given us opportunity for learning and development with aims of future provision to Universities and other student accommodation bodies.

As the circular agenda continues to grow in the Public Sector, the Reuse Consortium is perfectly placed to support Local Authorities, Public Sector bodies and organisations towards Net Zero.
