Redefine – love your op shop is back for another year, encouraging us to take a fresh look at our op shops and the creative wealth they hold.

The Presbyterian Support East Coast event promotes shopping at op shops and the repurposing of old items in order to minimise waste.

As a company which focuses on finding solutions for end-of-life products, we are excited to be sponsoring again this year.

Shirley Collins, PSEC’s Fundraising, Communication and Marketing Manager says, “Being mindful of waste and repurposing ‘pre-loved’ items – as opposed to buying new all the time – is a strong trend world-wide. Redefine maximises on this trend by encouraging people to not only get creative, but support charity shops at the same time.”

Shirley adds, “It is estimated that the New Zealand market has over 700 charity shops, with a net income of $100 million – an enormous contribution to the charity sector.”

So get behind this great event and support your op shop and repurposing!
