Repurposing everyday items in your home is a great way to save money and to indulge your crafty side. However, it is not just your wallet or sense of creativity that will benefit from repurposing items.

The benefits of repurposing and reusing items that you use in your house on a day to day basis go far beyond just saving you money. When you repurpose household items, you are also helping the environment, giving items a second, third or fourth life prevents them from ending up in landfill.


We want to normalise making the most of the things we own, throwaway culture is currently at its peak, and we want to change that, 2 items at a time!

We are asking you to repurpose 2 things throughout the month of April. Whether that’s repairing a hole in an item of clothing or finding a whole new use for an item that normally you would dispose of.


- Make your pledge here to repurpose or repair two items throughout the month of April.

- Share your repurposed or repaired items vita social media using the hashtag #2minuterepurposechallenge or if you don't use social media, email a photo over to

It's that simple!
