About Community RePaint
By purchasing paint from Exaireo Reuse Project you are helping reduce paint waste nationally, whilst supporting the homeless and saving hard earned money!
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 paint is either thrown away or stored in homes or garages despite over 50% of it still being usable.
Exaireo Reuse Project partners with Community RePaint, to help redistribute useable discarded and remanufactured that would otherwise go to waste.
Community RePaint is a UK wide paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, which 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 and in 2019 redistributed over 365,988 litres of paint. No two schemes are the same, varying in size, operational set up and motivational drivers but they all have the same vision to create communities where everyone has the opportunity to brighten their spaces and their lives.
Community Repaint has helped local groups and charities refresh shared spaces and create colourful murals for the community; enabled people on low income to redecorate their homes at low cost; and provided employment, training and volunteer opportunities building valuable skills and experience.
