On 24th November 2017, Newground ReUse will take part in the first ever Buy Nothing New Day! As part of this national event, Newground ReUse will be encouraging customers to consider visit the ReUse store in Blackburn for their furniture needs rather than buying new.
Quote from Buy Nothing New Day Champion: Sam Ellison, ReUse Assistant at Newground ReUse says: “This is a very exciting day for us and we are delighted to be joining force with the Furniture Re-use Network to raise awareness of the social benefits of reuse in our local community and encourage people to Buy Nothing New.”
Newground ReUse has been providing furniture solutions to the community for the last 4 years by supplying reuse furniture from its store on Pickup Street in Blackburn.
The Furniture Re-use Network launched Buy Nothing New Day to dispel the myth that second-hand, is second-best. Supporting your local furniture reuse charity by donating or buying from them allows charities to provide furniture and essential services to those in need.
Buy Nothing New Day is set to coincide with Black Friday and give people an ethical shopping alternative.
Craig Anderson, CEO, Furniture Re-use Network says: “FRN members rely on furniture donations to provide essential household goods to those in need but also to provide employment and volunteering opportunities.
FRN members rely on customers to buy from their shops to support their core activities to help people in time of crisis.”
Together with its members, the Furniture Re-use Network believes that no-one should be without a bed to sleep on, a cooker to cook on, or a sofa to sit on, wherever they live in the UK.
