Our Impact

Can you help us create a world without waste?

Since 2013 we have…

  • Saved over 1,700 tonnes of carbon from being added to the atmosphere. That’s the equivalent of 11,000 flights from Edinburgh to London
  • Supported hundreds of volunteers to gain new skills and confidence
  • Educated thousands of people in Edinburgh to repair and reuse things instead of needlessly throwing them away
  • Created a special community and friendships that will last a lifetime

Together, we are creating a world without waste. As a charity, we rely on grants and fundraising to keep going.

Over the years, our community has worked tirelessly to reduce waste on all fronts

  • We’ve put thousands and thousands of good things back to use through our Swapshop and Fresher’s Freeshops.
  • Food Sharing Edinburgh has saved mountains of food from an unnecessary fate in the bin and opened Scotland’s first rescued food shop!
  • Our events and workshops team have upskilled the community to repair their belongings and educated people about sustainable fashion.
  • The Wee Spoke Hub has helped hundreds of people fix their bikes to give them back their independence and reduce transport emissions.
