Zero Waste Scotland launches Revolve

Case Study Documentary (extract)

Zero Waste Scotland (ZWS) has launched Revolve, a new national standard for reuse organisations, in an effort to raise awareness of Scotland’s reuse sector and improve Scottish consumers’ faith in purchasing used goods. This film follows the transformation of Furniture Plus in Dysart, Fife to become one of the first organisations to achieve the Revolve accredited quality status. According to ZWS, Scotland’s reuse sector prevents 45,000 tonnes of reuseable goods from reaching landfill, generates in excess of £20 million for the Scottish economy and creates over 700 jobs, as well as more than 5,000 volunteer positions every year. Visit the Revolve website to find out more.

I guess you could call ths project a kind of 'Changing Rooms' for the Reuse sector where over the course of a week the store was transformed through visual merchandising, shop layout and presentation. It was a lot of fun watching the changes and seeing some items for sale can be made to look like amazing bargains with just a few simple steps. Here is a 5 min extract from the film.
