Did you know that an estimated 50 million litres of the 320 million litres of paint sold in the UK each year go to waste?

This leftover paint is either thrown away or stored in homes or garages despite over 50% of it still being usable! Don’t let it go to waste, and learn how to reuse leftover paint!

Community RePaint is a UK wide paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that aims to collect this leftover paint and redistribute it to benefit individuals, families, communities and charities in need at an affordable cost. The network is run on a day to day basis by Resource Futures, an environmental consultancy. The network is made up of over 65 schemes that vary in size, operational set up and motivational drivers but all have the same vision to create communities where everyone has the opportunity to brighten their spaces and their lives.
