Upcycling competition

Upcycling - bringing new life to old items

With more time at home why not repurpose items that may have previously been thrown away? Looking to disguise the wear and tear on your dining room chair? Grab a paintbrush. Fresh flowers but no vase? Grab a jam jar. Whether you are seeking to update a piece of furniture or are searching for a new use for those empty tins – upcycling is the best way to splash some new life into old items.

So, enjoy a more sustainable summer this year and create less waste. By choosing to reuse, you can help the environment and save money.

Chance to win a zero waste hamper

And as an added incentive, the Surrey Environment Partnership (SEP) has launched an exciting new upcycling competition.

Taking place throughout July, Surrey residents will simply need to submit a photograph of a recently completed upcycling project for a chance to win a zero waste hamper of goodies donated by Fetch'em from the Cupboard and Pedrick's Zero Waste Shop.

For more information on the competition and for some upcycling inspiration visit the SEP website.
