The Paint Place in Leytonstone - also known as Community RePaint East London - is celebrating it's new name by holding a Spring Open Day and paint giveaway on Saturday 9th March as part of National Climate Week. Join them between 11am and 3pm to discover an innovative sustainability project and help reuse 1 tonne of reclaimed paint!

The scheme will be giving away 5 litres of reclaimed paint (vinyl matt emulsion) per person to help kickstart those bank holiday DIY projects. There will also be a furniture painting workshop, kids recycled craft activities, mural painting, and a mini Give or Take of reused household goods. The Paint Place can be found at Unit 7, The Sidings (off Hainult Road), Leytonstone, E11 1HD. 

Let this Spring Open Day inspire a fresh coat of paint, a new design for tired furniture, or even a mural for community wall. The Paint Place has a pot for every job!

Community and creative organisations can sign up on the day to The Paint Place annual membership scheme and save up to £150 per year. The general public can also benefit from The Paint Place’s low cost, reclaimed paint all year round with paint starting from just £1 per litre. Last year, The Paint Place redistributed over 40,000 litres of reusable paint to individuals, community groups, art groups, schools and housing associations, diverting 56 tonnes of paint from disposal.
