Our recent projects

One of CRNI’s primary goals is to promote reuse. We achieve this through campaigns that highlight the importance and value of community reuse and recycling. Some past and present campaigns are highlighted below.

These campaigns have all been funded through the EPA’s Green Enterprise programme, which aims to ensure that cleaner greener production, re-use and ecoefficiency become the established norm in Ireland. For more information on this programme, please visit the EPA website.

Revival Roadshow: May - September 2015

The Revival Roadshow by CRNI in summer 2015 was a mobile reuse workshop space funded by the EPA Green Enterprise programme. This took the form of a fully upcycled decommissioned Dublin Fire Brigade ambulance. The overall aim was to bring reuse events to a geographically diverse audience. In total over 60 reuse workshops were carried out at festivals and with schools and community groups all over Ireland. The Revival Roadshow garnered a good deal of media interest with TV coverage featuring on both Nationwide and Eco Eye.

Pop-up Shop: May - August 2014

Revival by CRNI was a pop-up eco-store in Dublin city centre showcasing the very best of Irish reuse and redesign. Every item in the store was rescued, recovered and upcycled or reused. The project was funded under the EPA Green Enterprise Programme.

The aim of the pop-up shop project was to transform the way people think and shop by upcycling thse things that people normally throw out. A further aim of the project was to test the market for reuse, upcycled and second-hand items on the Irish high street.
