Community RePaint schemes collect reusable, leftover paint and re-distribute it to individuals, families, communities and charities in need, improving the wellbeing of people and the appearance of places across the UK.
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!
In 2013 the Community RePaint national network:
• saved 410, 148 litres of paint, donated by householders and businesses, from going to waste
• and redistributed over 245,000 litres of paint to community groups, charities, voluntary organisations and people in social need.
In doing so the Community RePaint network, managed by the environmental consultancy, Resource Futures, provides social, environmental and economic benefits.
Local companies can really boost a Community RePaint scheme by donating large quantities of paint following refurbishments....
Professional Painter and Decorator Magazine have included an article on Community Repaint....
If you know anyone in Bristol with experience of working with paint, who would like to volunteer, please get them to contact us!...
