Community RePaint

Written by Martin Gamester. Posted in Uncategorised

Each year over 300 million litres of paint (retail and trade) are sold in the UK. Of this, it is estimated that approximately 50 million litres are unused, stored in homes or garages or just thrown away. That's enough paint to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

We see 'waste paint' as a resource (as long as it is reusable) so do your bit for the environment and your local community by donating your leftover paint to us! 

Or if you need paint for a redecoration or art project then we can help

In 2015 the Community RePaint national network:

• saved over 432,000 of paint, donated by householders and businesses, from going to waste 

 and redistributed over 337,000 litres of paint to 2,477 community groups, charities and voluntary organisations and over 31,000 people in social need.

In doing so the Community RePaint network, sponsored by Dulux and managed by the environmental consultancy, Resource Futures, provides social, environmental and economic benefits.
