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.

The Real Junk Food Project – Glasgow

TRJFP intercepts food that would otherwise not make it to plate and serves it as delicious meals. Alongside the positive environmental impacts of reducing edible food waste, the project has clear social benefits through operating a strictly Pay-as-you-feel (PAYF) policy. Transcending monetary transactions, this liberates people to use their skills and attributes as well as money to pay for their meals, & highlights the absurdity that the produce used has been stripped of its monetary value but retains its nutritional value. TRJFP encourages a reflection on how we value food as a resource.
