Normalising Reuse and Repair in the UK | with Sarah Ottaway

Normalising Reuse and Repair in the UK

Organised on March 9, 2021

With the growing awareness of the impact we have on the environment encouraging more people to embrace reuse and repair, we see a rapid increase in organisations and business models specialising in pre-loved, repaired, repurposed or rental options from clothing to electrical equipment. But how do we take the next step and normalise individual decision making to look for these items before considering something new?

We gathered together a panel of leaders in this field, Elaine Brown (CEO of the Edinburgh Remakery), Zaqiya Cajee (Founder and Chief Executive of Swop It Up), Andrew Ferguson (Founder and CE of Refashion) and Sarah Ottaway (Sustainability and Social Value Lead, SUEZ) to discuss their activities at the forefront of this space, and how we take this key next step in creating a circular economy.
