Low-cost home improvement materials
Habitat ReStore is the low-cost DIY store that builds hope and homes- directly tackling poverty here in Ireland. It is a hub for Habitat’s work, connecting the local and global.
By selling donated new and used building and home improvement materials, ReStore serves thousands of families who need help to improve their homes at low cost and diverts tons of material from landfill.
ReStore supports local people through training and employment opportunities and raises funds to support Habitat’s work here at home and around the world.
Habitat ReStore also runs a Kitchen Rescue programme, which gives a new home to old kitchens. By working alongside local companies, Kitchen Rescue reaches out to customers who would consider donating their good quality, used kitchen to the Habitat ReStore. Habitat provides a service to kitchen donors and, by removing kitchens carefully, will rescue them for resale.
CRNI is leading an EPA Green Enterprise project Circular Textiles, which will test the impact of three different separate collection systems for textiles and explore how we could manage the additional quantity of textiles that are collected. This project will be concluded in 2022.
