Why buy new when you can upcycle perfectly good furniture or re-use those moving boxes - this is our thinking at ABC.
We strongly believe in re-using what some people may class as old items instead of buying new and creating more pollution and sending them to landfill sites.
Over on the ABC blog we are forever talking about upcycling and how you can turn your old tired furniture into vibrant pieces with new purposes.
We are members of Streetlife the local social network which is a great way to communicate with the local people in the areas of Camden, Southwark and Wandsworth where all of the ABC stores are located.
We often put advertisements on showcasing items that have been left or second-hand boxes that can be re-used for free if someone is happy to come and collect them.
Join your local Streetlife site now and maybe you might find some interesting and useful things that you can upcycle and give a new lease of life.
We even have a reusing and upcycling Pinterest Board where you can find all sorts of reusing ideas so you never need throw anything away again.Follow ABC Selfstore's board Reusing & Upcycling on Pinterest.
