Reverse Garbage Queensland collects industrial discards from more than 300 businesses around Brisbane. It then diverts them away from landfill and makes them available at low cost to the community.
Their warehouse is full of colourful and interesting materials. Each day they have a new truckload arriving so that stock is always changing.
These materials are suitable for several uses including art and craft, jewellery and costume making, theatre and film sets, party decoration, furniture and odd jobs around the home. They are available at just a fraction of the cost of purchasing new materials. If you buy from Reverse Garbage Queensland this also helps you to reduce your personal ecological impact.
So make sure you attend this party - it should be well worthwhile to pick up some unusual items!
