Feel good Fridays: Rekindle

Feel good Friday’s are a series of posts which shine a light on the good news stories about waste and waste elimination. 

This week I want to introduce you to a project called ‘ReKindle’. 

“Rekindle is a social enterprise that enables diversion of reusable resources from waste via creativity and craftsmanship. Seeing waste as resources full of latent creative opportunity fuels our work. We have initially focused on diverting timber from waste within residential demolition in Christchurch, turning this into furniture, interiors, sculpture and jewelery.”

This video gives a lovely overview of the enterprise and what they do: ReKindle

And their website showcases the project that they are involved with and the products which they create: ReKindle website

I love the fact that they are tackling commercial and construction waste, as this makes up a large percentage of the waste that currently goes into landfills in the UK. 

I’m sure you will agree that this is a fantastic project and one which could be easily replicated in communities around the world to enable more a huge percentage of waste to be diverted from landfill.
