What is ReMark?

ReMark, Ireland’s Reuse Quality Mark of Excellence was established to address consumer concerns regarding the quality and safety of reused goods. It is an organisational level accreditation process for the reuse sector.

To date, three organisations have been awarded the quality mark including Duhallow Revamp, Dublin Simon Community and Back2New

The quality mark and pilot were established through EPA Green Enterprise funding. CRNI is currently working toward rolling ReMark out at a national level.

Why is there a need for it?

According to consumer research we commissioned in September 2017, only 23% of Irish Consumers bought second-hand (reused) goods in the last 6 months.

  • 59% Cited Quality As A Purchase Barrier
  • 43% Cited Safety As A Purchase Barrier
A quality mark is a way of addressing these quality and safety concerns through a formalised accreditation process.
