Minister Ossian Smyth TD Launches #Reuse Month 2021

Reuse Month demonstrates the hidden value in our discarded items

During Reuse Month communities and individuals around Ireland will come together to learn how one person’s unwanted item could be another person’s treasure. In October there are nationwide initiatives that will highlight how to reuse everyday items and materials that would otherwise go to waste. It aims to inspire and empower individuals to see the value in items they might usually choose to discard. Throughout the month there will be free workshops on an array of subjects such as teaching people how to remake their favourite piece of clothing, how to transform an old piece of furniture and even how to make a lamp from an empty glass bottle.

You can register for these free events as follows:

Thurs 7 Oct Reuse Fashion Masterclass:

Thurs 21 Oct Furniture Upcycling Masterclass:
