Reusing unwanted materials as Art & Educational Supplies
ReCreate is a social enterprise making art materials and educational supplies affordable and accessible to every sector of the community for all kinds of creative purposes.
The project is based around the concept known as Creative Reuse which encourages the public to reuse materials that would normally be thrown away in all kinds of creative and inventive ways. We source clean, reusable materials from businesses all over Ireland and supply these as arts and crafts materials and educational play resources for early years, primary/secondary schools, individual artists and students, families, community and special needs groups.
Membership is open to anyone and gives unlimited access to materials. Members pay an annual subscription fee and in turn have unlimited access to the materials stored in ReCreate’s Warehouse Of Wonders (WOW).

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.
