Preloved and Perfect

We held a one-of-a-kind Christmas shopping event this week at our ReUse shop to promote the importance of buying sustainably.

The event allowed colleagues, many of whom were visiting the shop for the first time, to see first-hand items donated by residents to our RRC's that have been saved from going into the waste stream.

Staff also browsed the shop's extensive selection of curated second-hand items, which included furniture, tableware, books, and musical instruments.

The ReUse Shop sells unique preloved items at reasonable prices. Colleagues could purchase gifts at extremely low prices because LondonEnergy provides colleagues with a 50% staff discount at the ReUse Shop. Christmas decorations, books, and binoculars were among some of the items purchased. 

The shop had a lovely festive atmosphere, and refreshments (hot chocolate, mince pies) were available.

The event was a very enjoyable experience.
