Global Justice Edinburgh

Global Justice Edinburgh are the Edinburgh group of Global Justice Now – a democratic social justice organisation working as part of a global movement to challenge the powerful and create a more just and equal world. They believe that a better world is possible: a world where our resources and decisions about how they’re used lie in the hands of the many, not the few; a world where resources are available to all, not just to those who can afford them.

GJN mobilise people in the UK for change, and act in solidarity with those fighting injustice, particularly in the global south.

The Shrub Swap and Reuse Hub

The Shrub Swap and Reuse Hub is Edinburgh’s hub for creative reuse. In 4 years it’s grown from an idea into an exciting community hub for sustainable living.

We’ve put loads of love into our space on Guthrie Street and it’s looking and running better than ever, offering hundreds of creative reuse and repair workshops and enabling you to reduce your waste by swapping things you don’t need for things you do.

We’d love to welcome you to our community! Get involved by becoming a member from just £12 per year, sign up for our newsletter and check out our volunteering opportunities.
