nlwanews

In the framework of the European Week for Waste Reduction, ACR+ member North London Waste Authority, together with environmental charity Groundwork London, will host the “London Upcycling Show” on 19 November 2017. The main goal of the event is to educate the public about upcycling furniture – while simultaneously rescuing valuable resources from being thrown away.

The event will showcase the idea of upcycling through various inspirational and practical workshops, interactive demonstrations and creative exhibitions from local businesses. The show will also see the exhibition and judging of entries from the upcycling competition for north Londoners. The competition entrants are turning old furniture into items to treasure.

In 2016 edition saw almost 200 north Londoners participating in the London Upcycling Show, which directly diverted 441 kilograms of furniture from disposal via the upcycling of competition items.
