Lots to love @ the reLove Pop-up Shop!
What do you get when people with a passion for diverting hard rubbish from landfill get creative and ambitious…?
- > You get a new approach to encouraging the community to do better with its ‘waste’ by facilitating them to bypass the hard rubbish crusher in favour of stocking a shop with preloved items looking for a new home.
- > You give talented local artists a space to sell their beautiful items.
- > You rescue thousands of items and divert hundreds of kgs of waste from landfill.
You get all this and more!
Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes (DHRH), Transition Darebin and Span couldn’t be prouder of all that’s been achieved in our little experiment over the last 6 weeks.
The Heroes are truly living up to their name, with an army of dedicated volunteers running the shop, rescuing items from nature strips all over Darebin, cleaning and fixing items to get them shop-ready and engaging with the community on the importance of it all.
We’ve learned so much, created amazing connections and helped spark confidence and creativity for some of the super-talented upcyclers locally.
So far we have rehomed over 3,000 preloved items, weighing over 1,700 kgs, diverting them from the hungry jaws of the hard rubbish crusher!
There’s only two weeks left to go, so if you haven’t been yet, make sure you get there before we shut the doors on Sat 30-July!
Wed – Sat 10am to 4pm
Sun – 10am to 2pm
