Recycle Your Small Home Treasure is a unique 12 months project in West London area where people can leave with us their small objects: jewellery, fashion accessories (small handbags, hats), electronics, small house decorations, small/foreign loose coins, statuettes, vases etc.. We will act on their behalf as their agents on various online platforms to find new homes for their loved treasures and arrange transactions on their behalf. Where before, people would have binned or left behind their small "treasures" they can now leave them with us and we will re-home / recycle them for them for a small fee & give back a percentage to the local community too through Foundation Wellbeing Trust Local projects. We will get members of the local community involved as volunteers and we will also run small local workshops where we will teach people in our community to do it themselves. We will also give back to the community through Foundation Wellbeing Trust Community Projects

What we'll deliver:

  • Re-invest anually in Foundation Wellbeing Trust Community Projects
  • Set up a local recycle_your_small_hometreasures point (collection/processing)
  • Run weekly small training workshops onsite on how to do it yourself (recycle online)

Why it's a great idea:

Helping our environment: Recycling helps protect the environment and our community.Because recycling saves energy, it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, helping to tackle climate change. Helping people in need of quick extra cash in our community access a wider audience online. Teach them how to do it themselves too! Giving back to our community by the donations (%age) made to Foundation Wellbeing Trust through amazing Community Projects in West London such as Transformkids, DanzFitFun for girls. Let's do this !
