Tell me more.
Waste comes in all forms - it isn’t just empty food packets and broken electronics. Homeware that is thrown away, rather than being recycled or reused, is a big issue too.
That’s why Dunelm and Hubbub have created the ‘Home to Home’ initiative, which will see Dunelm stores collaborating with local community groups. The goal is to redistribute as many pre-loved homeware items as possible - so less waste is created, and more money is saved.
How does it work?
Dunelm is encouraging customers to bring pre-loved items into the store so that they can be sorted and redistributed back into the community. Additionally, Dunelm will be contributing its own ex-display items, samples, and other products that are needed by its community partners.
Partners include Emmaus, a charity that supports people who are homeless, The Bread and Butter Thing, which focuses on food security, and Julian House, which supports people who are living in temporary accommodation.
If you want to get involved, head down to your local Dunelm and ask about their Home to Home initiative.
