The National Centre for the Circular Economy in Ireland

The Rediscovery Centre is the National Centre for a Circular Economy in Ireland. It is a creative movement connecting people, ideas and resources to support greener low-carbon living. At our headquarters in Ballymun, the Centre supports four reuse social enterprises: Rediscover Furniture, Rediscover Fashion, Rediscover Paint and Rediscover Cycling. These social enterprises use unwanted materials donated for reuse to create new upcycled products and designs. At the same time, they create training opportunities for the long term unemployed and all revenue generated from its activities are reinvested in the enterprise. 

In addition to our Dublin based activities, we also run a national education programme delivering environmental workshops and programmes to students at all levels of the formal education system and also to teachers, community groups and the general public. Through our strategic partnership with the EPA we also facilitate the Circular Economy Academy, offering mentoring and support to individuals and organisations in the early stages of their circular economy journey.
