Share & Repair.
Borrowing not buying - Fixing not throwing - Sharing is caring

We are launching the Borrow Bus – a mobile library of things – across North East Wales to help households save money and to reduce local levels of waste.

This Lottery funded project is led by reSource, a community interest company based in Ruthin, working in partnership with Drosi Bikes (Llangollen) and Crest (Llandudno) and partnering with:
  • Y Ty Gwyrdd, Denbigh
  • Repair Cafés in Mold and Ruthin
  • Pengwern Community Hub
  • Friends of the Earth Llangollen and Ruthin.
The bus will be traveling around North East Wales making it easy for people to share and borrow household and garden items that are used infrequently, so encouraging a local Circular Economy. Over time it will increasingly attend complementary events such as repair cafés, community festivals etc.

To learn more about our community and how you could benefit from this project we want to ask you a few questions.

This survey will only take you 5 minutes to complete with responses no later than August 19th latest.

All entries registering for our mailing list will be entered into a draw for a £50 voucher.

All responses are confidential. No individual named person or data is shared without their explicit agreement.
