Share the story, increase the reuse
Visiting a Community RePaint scheme is always worth the trip. Finding affordable paint, buying an environmentally friendly product and meeting some lovely knowledgable staff and volunteers. You will get all of this, and a look at a beautiful new mural, when visiting Community RePaint Torfaen. Bringing a bit of joy to everyone who visits, the new mural was completed by a local nursery to brighten up Community RePaint Torfaens car park.
After all Community RePaint Torfaen has done for the Community, the volunteers wanted to give something back to the scheme, and bring a bit of colour to the area. After sourcing some colourful paint and using a white undercoat provided by Community RePaint Torfaen, the volunteers from a local nursery were able to get to work and created a brightly coloured mural.
Community RePaint Torfaen has been a part of the Community RePaint network since 2010, collecting and redistributing usable, leftover paint back to those in need. Based in the heart of the Torfaen community, they have made affordable paint accessible to hundreds of people and charities. A brilliant example of this is a story recently covered by Cwmbran life. Alyson Davies, a local resident in Cwmbran, has been using leftover paint from Community RePaint Torfaen to paint the benches around the town during the pandemic. Find out more here.
