50 million litres of paint are wasted in the UK every year, but we want to change this. With the International Bristol Balloon Fiesta in full swing, we want to reflect on this.
Share the story, increase the reuse
Each year, the UK is estimated to waste 50 million litres of paint which is enough to fill 18 hot air balloons. We see this as a valuable resource, and so do our network of over 70 schemes. By either finding your nearest scheme and supporting the work they do by purchasing affordable paint from them, you can help us make a difference, whilst still providing a saving for you. If you have already painted, you can find multiple drop off points for paint on our website. We also love working with decorators, retailers, manufacturers and waste contractors, so get in touch with us to discuss this further.
