It is estimated that the UK produces around 8 million tonnes of wood waste each year. Currently more than 80% of that is landfilled, despite the fact that much of it is perfectly reusable. So we set up a Wood Recycling Social Enterprise to find ways to reuse this 'waste' and help save the world's resources. Our social and environmental business also helps boost the local economy by providing jobs and training opportunities for local people.
HowOur staff and volunteers work with local builders, businesses and organisations; collecting waste wood, bringing it back to life, and recreating the material as a reusable product. The timber goes on sale at our shop, The Wood Store, where it is available 'as is', or made into beautiful items for your home, garden or workplace.
WhoWe are an award-winning Social Enterprise - a non-profit Company Limited by Guarantee, which means we have no owners or shareholders, so all our profits go back into the development of the Project for the benefit of the environment and the local community.
We have a large shop and showroom in a giant old warehouse in central Brighton, open to the public from Monday to Saturday. The shop comprises a timber yard where we sell recycled wood for construction and DIY projects such as lengths of timber, sheet material and scaffold boards. We also have old reclaimed floorboards, antique pine joists, driftwood and all kinds of beautiful pieces that have a unique history and charm. There is a huge furniture showroom, where we display and sell our shelving, furniture and other interesting items from recycled wood, which can be custom-made to your design. In addition, we have a gift shop full of unusual and interesting items for home & garden, plus seasonal sales of plants, planters garden furniture and accessories. And we sell local charcoal and locally sourced logs, plus firewood made from recycled wood.
