Pass it On Week 2020 at Shetland Home Co

Shetland Home Co, part of social enterprise COPE Ltd, is taking part in the Pass it on Week – Scotland's annual celebration of re-use, from 7th to 15th March 2020.

Pass it on Week can be about swapping, and getting people to trade things they don’t want any more for things that they do. It can be about upcycling, and turning something tired into something inspired. This national call to action for people in Scotland embraces the incredible potential of re-use by swapping, donating, sharing or repairing to help make things last!

Shetland Home Co’s function is to re-use and recycle household items in Shetland with the aim of reducing waste. Their skilled team maximise this aim by carrying out small repairs, PAT testing all electrical items and ensuring all items are clean and in good working order before sale.

COPE Ltd Chief Executive Officer, Ingrid Webb said “Pass it on Week is all about encouraging people to understand how second hand items are not second best. By valuing these items we in turn value our environment. It is also important to mention that by shopping at Shetland Home Co you also help to support people with learning disabilities and autism be employed or learn valuable employability skills and in turn be valued members of our community”.

For dropping off your goods, or for browsing the shop, Shetland Home Co is open Monday to Saturday 9am to 4pm, all year round. Shetland Home Co is at Port Business Park, Gremista, Lerwick. If you have any queries about donating goods please telephone 01595 696889 then dial 2.
