We invite you to get creative, prioritise second hand goods, learn and continue to support and engage in reuse and recycling during this challenging period. Here are the ways you can work with CRNI Members to help contribute to a just and inclusive Circular transition.
Follow ReCreate’s wonderful Creative Corner series of six-minute videos on creative reuse available here.
These videos cover a range of themes to give you and your family an idea of different activities to take part in from the comfort of your own home. Whether you have access to ReCreate materials, or just working with items you have discovered around your house, these sessions are simple and easy to take part in.
Follow the Rediscovery Centre’s Rediscover @ Home month-long video series here. Uploaded daily, these will go behind the scenes at the Rediscovery Centre and share tips on sustainability and upcycling, provide online tours of the centre and deliver some curriculum-led educational tutorials.

Many cafes (not all) in the Conscious Cup Campaign, are restricting customer’s reusable cups as a temporary measure to minimise contact during an unprecedented emergency situation. It is not permanent and we encourage you to return to normal reuse practice once this is all over.
In the meantime, you can continue to support your local cafe and reuse by asking your barista to make your favourite coffee drink in a for here cup and transfer it yourself into your reusable cup to bring home.
