The Shrub Swap and Reuse Hub is Edinburgh’s hub for creative reuse. In 3 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 £10 per year, sign up for our newsletter and check out our volunteering opportunities.
