‘The Big Declutter’ - Pass It on Week 2019 at Shetland Home Co

Shetland Home Co, part of the social enterprise COPE Ltd, are again getting involved in Pass it on Week – Zero Waste Scotland’s annual celebration of re-use. Pass it on Week is running from 9-17 March 2019 and this year the theme is ‘The Big Declutter’.

Part of Zero Waste Scotland’s Pass It on Week hopes to show that decluttering is more than just a clear out, it is a way of passing your unwanted items on to someone who might love them, rather than simply throwing them away. Shetland Home Co will also run a special offer of 20% off any purchases (excluding any Pet Shop purchases) during the Pass it on Week to encourage people donate their unwanted goods.

Shetland Home Co Business Manager, Louise Watson said “Having a declutter and passing an item on is a great way to help your local community. Other positive effects of reusing items rather than dumping them include reducing waste to landfill, saving energy, protecting the environment and you can get some really good bargains too! Passing things on feels great and can make someone else’s day.”

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.

Shetland Home Co is proudly part of COPE Ltd, a Shetland based social enterprise and charity which provides employment and skill development for adults with learning disabilities or autism spectrum disorders.
