Since its establishment in 1998, The Bower has been an acclaimed environmental charity and a leading advocate for the principles of reuse and repair. At the forefront of promoting a circular economy, The Bower is committed to its mission of achieving zero waste. By reclaiming household items and building materials for reuse and resale, they actively contribute to reducing landfill waste and minimising the demand for new raw materials. In doing so, The Bower not only fosters sustainability but also plays a vital role in curbing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, making a significant impact on environmental conservation.
