The Loop @ Pembury hopes to turn reuse, upcycling and repairing into a force for good!
Our aim is simple but ambitious: We want to make Pembury the greenest estate in Europe. Imagine that!
1) We’ve set up a workshop on the estate, out of which quality secondhand furniture is restored and made available for purchase! Items are sold at super, cheap prices and Peabody residents get first chance to buy. Promise!
2) We’ve set up a collection service. All Pembury residents now have an alternative. Rather than dump reusable furniture and appliances outside as waste, residents can now call us and donate their unwanted items to the Loop. We don’t profit, all money raised is reinvested in the workshop and in training opportunities for residents.
When residents arrange a collection with us, we will come within 24 hours and collect the item you have to donate. Promise!
The Loop @ Pembury is a group for all! We’re looking to talk to residents who may wish to get involved in promoting the project on the estate, and Hackney residents who, like us, think the project is fabulous and worth supporting.
– If you want to be part of a BIG project with massive aims, join the group!
– If you enjoy carpentry, fixing things or up-cycling, join us!
– If you’re on the look out for some quality secondhand furniture, join us! We’ll show you what’s for sale.
– If you just want to be a nosey neighbour, that’s fine too!
We’ll be regularly updating our Facebook page. This will be a good place to sneak a peak at what The Loop @ Pembury and all the residents who are helping us are up to. There’ll be loads of cool photos too, for you to share with others.
Your unwanted furniture
By donating to The Loop, you not only support the training of other residents, you also don’t contribute unnecessary waste which costs a FORTUNE to remove and never looks good all stacked up beside the bins.
What we sell is affordable, and by passing on your unwanted items, you give people a chance to furnish their homes who might not otherwise be able to afford it. Everyone’s a winner!
