toogoodtowaste is the leading re-use charity and social enterprise operating in Rhondda Cynon Taf. We reduce waste by collecting re-usable household items and redistributing them via our charity showrooms. The income we raise enables us to help low income households and provide training and volunteering opportunities.
In 2015 we received 294 applications for help which benefited 395 people, supported over 300 volunteers and placements and re-used over 537 tonnes of household items that would have otherwise been destined for landfill. Over 58,000 items were sold and selected for re-use.
Our showrooms offer a wide range of furniture at great prices. From vintage to modern, we have something for every taste and pocket.
Please support our charitable aims by donating your unwanted items or by choosing to buy recycled.
