Reuse Restoring, reusing and redistributing goods
  • ReUse badge
It can be tempting to buy new things, but if we can restore, reuse or share items with others who need them, we will use fewer resources.

How to earn this badge

If you do three or more of these, you will earn a Reuse Badge (Household).

  1. We restore worn out or unserviceable items so they can be used again
  2. We give items away to charities or agencies which collect unwanted items which are useable
  3. We contribute items to garage sales or other reuse sale events or markets
  4. We hand on useable children's clothing and toy items to friends, family and neighbours

Remember, Green Street Badges rely on each member's honest declaration of what they are doing to be sustainable, so check the actions for each badge carefully!
