Here you will be directed to information about all the amazing projects in and around Bristol that mean your unwanted resources can be given a new life somewhere else with someone else. This includes used clothing sent all around the world to people who really need it, waste resources from businesses reused for children's play, unwanted wood that's collected and reused for new building projects and unwanted household items that find their way to a new home. Surplus food is distributed to people in need, and used for ethical catering.
