Galway Reuse and Repair Initiative, 2017
Galway County Council and Galway City Council have co-hosted The Galway Reuse and Repair Initiative, 2017
This event was designed to showcase examples of reuse, repair and upcycling currently being undertaken by businesses, organisations, voluntary groups and others in Galway and beyond.
The event built on a similar event held in 2016. A social media campaign to promote and follow up from the event was undertaken.
The event boosted waste prevention/resource efficiency in the region through creating awareness and increasing the profile of existing working examples of reuse, repair and upcycling in the community and looking towards expanding the network.
