We're zeroing in on Net Zero

September is our month of sustainability

It's a new month, a new season and we're making it our official month of Sustainability - at least for 2022.

So, with that in mind, alongside our Sustainability Summit, we're bringing you Towards Zero. If you're all for the talks from the Summit, then get ready for the action because we'll be hosting a series of exciting events, content and competitions.

Together, we can make simple changes in attitude and action, that can form long-lasting, impactful change!

Check out the list of what's coming and get on board.

Our focus is to find a new home for like new items that are otherwise left unused.
Please remember: gift new/like new items only, something you would be happy to give/receive from a friend or loved one, also:
1. No perishable items
2. No damaged items
