Salvation Army Trading Company (SATCoL) has launched a Furniture Reuse scheme to expand its corporate partnership offering and help divert furniture stock away from disposal.
Working together with brand partners and organisations, SATCoL lessens environmental impact by extending the useful life of products, while the trading arm of The Salvation Army helps to raise vital funds for charity through its nationwide reuse and repurposing schemes.
SATCoL’s latest Furniture Reuse scheme calls for businesses to donate excess, returned, end-of-line and showroom sample furniture stock to be upcycled and resold in The Salvation Army’s 240 retail outlets.
The profit SATCoL receives from the resale of these items is given to The Salvation Army to continue to support the work it does across the country. The Salvation Army provides specialist support for survivors and potential victims of modern slavery, shelter for those experiencing homelessness, and much more.
The new Furniture Reuse scheme is designed to prevent even more items from entering the waste stream and is another way for SATCoL to support the circular economy. Each year, the Salvation Army Trading Company diverts over 250 million items to good uses, including over 62,000 tonnes of textiles.
