Community RePaint Glasgow, run by Emmaus Glasgow, opened their doors towards the end of September 2022. Local residents, community groups and charities can purchase paint from the scheme, which currently stocks interior emulsion and furniture chalk paint from our ReColour range of remanufactured paint. This paint is available at affordable prices – perfect for those in the area looking to redecorate without breaking the bank.
The new Glasgow scheme is hosted in Emmaus Glasgow’s charity shop on Ellesmere Street in Hamiltonhill and is part of the UK-wide Community RePaint network. They also stock a smaller quantity of ReColour remanufactured paint in a second charity shop, located on Dumbarton Road in Partick.
Our Community RePaint Glasgow scheme operates alongside their other long-running work in the local area, hosting a residential community of 27 formerly homeless men and women (“companions”) and a recycling/reuse business from their two retail charity shops.
Community RePaint is an award-winning paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that provides a solution to the problem of over 50 million litres of paint being wasted in the UK each year. The network’s schemes collect, process and redistribute paint at an affordable cost to benefit individuals, families, communities and charities in need In 2021 alone, the schemes in the network collected over 387,000 litres of paint from individuals, retailers, decorators and manufacturers, and redistributed over 255,000 litres of paint to individuals, families, community groups and charities, adding colour to the lives of over 176,000 people.
Community RePaint Glasgow can be found at 101 Ellesmere Road, Hamiltonhill and is open Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm. If you are an individual, community group or charity in need of paint, or if you are a business with leftover paint, you can contact them by email (email@example.com) for more details.
