Our store is a community initiative to reduce waste. We acquire goods that would otherwise go to landfill from businesses and provide these items at low cost for children’s activities, craftspeople, teachers and play groups. Most of the goods are off-cuts and fun, funky or weird materials that inspire creativity and are worth having a second go round rather than being dumped.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- assisting visitors and customers to select items
- creating things from the materials to demonstrate what can be used
- maintaining and arranging items
- keeping the shop clean and presentable
- collection of materials from local businesses.
We are located at 268 Beach Road, Hackham West and are open on Thursdays from 2-5pm and Fridays from 10am–4pm.
- an interest in resource recovery or waste and recycling issues
- good customer service approach
- ability to relate to people from a wide range of backgrounds
- ability to work within a team
- creativity or a willingness to give ‘crafts’ a try.
