RE-CD sustainable furniture FAQs
Is RE-CD made with resin?
No! RE-CD stands apart from other 'eco' materials by being made from 100% post consumer waste. It is purely produced using old recycled CDs, no virgin materials are added due to our signature reprocessing method.
Can I donate CDs?
Yes, you can! Check out our 'Connect' page (here) for more information. We offer a CD recycling program for both commercial and domestic users.
Where are the products made?
We are proud Bristolians. All of the products are designed, manufactured, fabricated and materials are sourced as locally as possible. As a Bristol furniture shop we aim to reduce our footprint in the delivery process too, so hand delivery is also an option if you are local!
What about CD cases/papers?
We are currently in the process of finding an ethical business to partner up with that could give them a new lease of life. While this is ongoing, we ask that you recycle the cases at your local recycling centre, while the card within can be placed in your weekly collection. If you do happen to know a business we could work with on this, please put us in touch!
What types of disc do we use?
We recommend that you try and sell or donate old working CDs to charity shops or local organisations. However, if the CD is broken or no longer has a use then we encourage you to donate the CDs into our circular economy.
Can I recycle CDs? How can I recycle CDs?
Over 300 billion CDs have been produced worldwide, creating a lasting impact on local and global environments when they are disposed of. Currently, local councils do not offer the option for domestic recycling of CDs, instructing the public to dispose of them in general waste, in turn ending up in landfill sites. On average each CD takes over 1 million years to decompose, meaning waste and landfill sites are only ever getting bigger.
We are on a mission to change the future of recycling by creating beautiful, practical, and stylish furniture and home accessories purely from repurposed and recycled materials. RE-CD is our unique and innovative material that can be crafted into many different forms and designs.
While we create and design our own furniture, home, and fashion accessories, we also invite designers and crafters alike to implement our material into their own products. We offer the option to purchase quantities of the raw material.
