Start small. Connect more. Use less.
The Useless Project helps people take steps toward more sustainable living through tutorials, workshops, tips on food waste prevention, reuse, secondhand and upcycled fashion for individuals, schools or businesses.
We run events (including a monthly flea market!), workshops and provide a wide range of education and awareness-raising resources from DIY upcycling videos and sewing tutorials, to batch-cooking recipes, climate justice deep-dives and listicles of our favourite sustainable brands in Ireland and beyond.
We’re not calling for a small amount of people to be perfectly zero-waste or “100% sustainable”. What we want to see is a huge amount of people making incremental positive changes in whatever way they can. So if you’re someone who feels useless – just start small. Keep it simple. Just use less.
CRNI supports its members and works to mainstream reuse thanks to core funding provided by the EPA under the Circular Economy Programme.

CRNI’s Green + Social Virtual Trade Fair is funded by Ireland’s Regional Waste Management Plan Offices. This innovative virtual platform is open 24/7 and gives visitors the opportunity to explore green and social procurement opportunities provided by reuse, repair and recycling social enterprises and community-based organisations across Ireland.
