SOFA Project paint reuse revolution
As of late 2018, the SOFA Project has been in partnership with Community RePaint and Bristol Waste. The community repaint network aims to collect leftover paint and redistribute it. Sponsored by Dulux, the network is made up of over 65 schemes and annually redistributes over 300,00 litres of paint.
You must have been busy getting your hands dirty as we've shifted an amazing amount of reuse paint tins. We have just had the results tallied for the first quarter of this year, and incredibly we've sold 1732 litres of paint! That's over 690 individual tins supporting 4 community groups and 391 customers.
How can you get involved?
We now have both West Street and Gloucester Road shops stocked with brilliant reuse paint. Roughly priced at £1 - 2 per litre, you can choose from a wide range of colours plus interior and exterior paints.
If you wish to donate paint to the SOFA Project, you can do so at our West Street shop, remembering the paint must be a minimum of half full and in usable condition. For more information please call us on 0117 954 7800.
