The Re-New Community Workshop and Store will be closed until further notice, from Monday 4th September 2023.
But, our online store will remain open, with lots of lovely products, and we hope to open our physical store again soon.
At Re-New we salvage goods from skip bins and recycle centres; from building site dumpsters and everyday people with things that they would otherwise throw into the rubbish, and we repair or restore it, if its damaged or worn; or we repurpose (up-cycle) it, if we can see a new purpose in it. If we can't repair, restore or repurpose it, we recycle it, by dismantling it and using the parts for other Re-New products.
We create new products using salvaged materials from building sites, manufacturing businesses, other repair businesses and donated goods.
We will have a new workshop, in Hawke's Bay, for our community to come and create, recreate, upcycle and recycle, with space and equipment, to express their talents and skills and sell their crafts, in the new year.
If you would like to join our community or help contribute to our community efforts, please visit our Fundraising page and learn about us and our plans and help our fundraising efforts.
