Not only does wasting paint mean it can’t be reused by others, but it also wastes water.

World Water Day is an annual celebration held in March that highlights the importance of fresh water. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

A huge 50 million litres of paint is wasted in the UK every year. Not only this, but householders themselves waste 40 litres of reusable paint every minute. This means that water and other raw materials required to produce the paint also wasted. It’s simple to reduce this figure, pick up reusable, leftover paint for your decorating projects, and take your leftover paint to your nearest drop-off point when you are finished.
