Ecobuild 2014: Get the 'F' out of refuse...Re-use
Get the 'F' out of refuse...Re-use - presentation by Richard Featherstone, Development Manager, London Reuse Limited.
There is a responsibility for all of us protect our resources and this means primarily reusing what we have, refurbishing rather than rebuilding and upcycling - repurposing waste and potentially discarded products and materials into something useful. The Mayor's vision for London included quadrupling furniture reuse demonstrating that reuse and upcycling has a key role in sustainability policy and performance. Once we have the mindset to upcycle 'chairs', why not embrace the same principles to upcycle buildings? The principles apply to both domestic and commercial buildings, fittings and furnishings. This seminar session shows how achievable upcycling can be.
