Buy Nothing New Day at Refurbs Wrexham and Flint

Launched  in  2017  as  an  alternative  ethical  shopping  day  to  Black  Friday  Buy Nothing  New Day  is  coming  to  Refurbs  Wrexham  and  Flint.

Refurbs  who  have  shops  in  Wrexham  and  Flint  offering  quality  reconditioned  and  recycled electrical  appliances  and  household  items  are  promoting  the  Buy  Nothing  New  Day  initiative with  a  10%  discount  offer  to  all  customers  on selected items  along with  an  additional  5%  discount  if  you  are  in  receipt  of  any  benefits.  The  offer  is  available not  only  on  Friday  November  29th  but  also  on  Saturday  30th  November  and  Monday  2nd and  Tuesday  1st  December   2019.

Buy  Nothing  New  Day  originates  from  Canadian  artist  Ted  Dave  who  in  1992  to  raise awareness  of  our  consumerism  behaviour  started  Buy  Nothing  Day.  Buy  Nothing  Day  was adopted  in  the  UK  by  the  Reuse  Network,  re-branded  and  re-launched  as  Buy  Nothing New  Day  in  2017.  With  the  aim  of  promoting  the  benefits  to  all  purchasing  recycled  and reconditioned  items.

Donating  to  or  buying  from  local  charities  such  as  Refurbs  not  only  enables  them  to provide  support  and  services  to  communities  across  North  Wales,  it  prevents  hundreds  of tonnes  of  waste  going  to  landfill.  Reusing  and  recycling  these  items  rather  than  sending  to  landfill  helps  reduce  global  warming  in  turn  tackling  climate  change.  

Karen  Balmer  Chief  Executive  said:  “Last  year  Refurbs  sold  over  4,118  items  of  pre-loved electrical  appliances  and  household  furniture.  With  our  new  site  in  Wrexham  we  hope  we can  recycle  and  recondition  more  items  making  people  aware  of  the  wide  range  of  benefits of  utilising  recycled  and  reconditioned  electrical  appliances  and  household  items,  not  only to  their  pockets  but  also  to  the  environment”.
