Repurpose everything!

We’re all about repurposing things, recycling things, and upcycling things – call it what you will – we like to repurpose everything! What does this mean? Well, it can mean everything from taking apart old junk and making it into something new, or even just acquiring used things instead of buying new. Why do we say “old junk?” Well, it’s not really “junk” because old stuff was usually made better and was made to last – that quality used to be strived for by the makers of things – now, nearly everything made is disposable – not even repairable – so that you’re forced to go out and buy it new again in just a couple years. Our Grandparents knew how to reuse and repurpose, but it’s now nearly a lost artform. This site is a not-for-profit organisation comprised of people who repurpose things and share their knowledge. We hope you enjoy!
