History

Origins

Originally intended to be an ‘Undo Club’ – a group of people that dismantle and source-segredate used items into their material parts for the purpose of recycling, we soon realized that extending the life of the items through reuse and repair would be a much better choice over truly effective recycling.

We currently operate as a ‘middle man’ community group, that sorts and passes on our donated items into the correct circular loops, i.e. reuse, repair, recycling, upcycling. We close these loops by collaborating with local charities, social enterprises and other social or environmental groups.
