Our mission

Our mission is to lead change from waste to resource through Reuse, Redesign, Research and Education. Our objectives are to prevent waste going to landfill, provide employment and training and inspire sustainable living.

The Rediscovery Centre is a creative movement connecting people, ideas and resources for greener, low carbon living. As the National Centre for the Circular Economy in Ireland, we work to design out waste by repair, reuse, redesign and innovation.

The Rediscovery Centre is located in a demonstration eco-facility; a centre of excellence in sustainability incorporating educational exhibits, renewable and efficient energy systems, sustainable building materials, rainwater harvesting, grey water recycling, composting toilets and gardens designed for biodiversity enhancement and environmental education.

The Rediscovery Centre is registered as a charity with the Revenue Commissioners (CHY 18331) in Ireland.

The Rediscovery 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.

The Rediscovery Centre is an accredited Discover Primary Science and Maths centre that offers interactive educational workshops for primary, secondary and third level students covering wide-ranging environmental and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) topics.

The Rediscovery Centre is open to the public Monday to Saturday 9-5pm and includes an eco store supporting Irish producers and designers, a cafe (relaunching mid-July) and meeting spaces suitable for sustainability gatherings and events.
