Emmaus Bolton is celebrating five years of stocking ReColour paint – a great source of income to support people with experience of homelessness as well as a source of work and training.

ReColour chalk, emulsion and masonry paint is remixed to a high standard from household and business excess, and passed on to Emmaus Bolton by UK wide paint reuse network, Dulux-sponsored, Community RePaint.

Customers can choose ReColour as one of the finishes for orders of made to measure furniture or for upcycling projects carried out at Emmaus Bolton’s workshops at Derby Barracks off Fletcher Street. ReColour is also available directly from the shelves of our Drill Hall store for exterior and interior DIY projects.  Please ask about our painting and decorating packs, available for painters and decorators and other tradespeople for large scale projects.

ReColour paint is created by two remanufacturing centres in the Community RePaint Network. Using technology developed by Newlife paints, the two remanufacture centres work hard all year round to remanufacture sizeable quantities of leftover paint into new, high quality emulsion, masonry, and furniture chalk paint.

Director of Emmaus Bolton, Tony Stephenson, said: “Buying ReColour recycled paint from Emmaus Bolton not only saves customers money, it also saves the local environment because you’re buying high quality paint remanufactured from what otherwise might go to waste.

“Every purchase helps this homelessness charity provide rooms, meals, pay the bills and other costs needed to help people supported by Emmaus. ReColour is associated with many community projects across the UK and provides brighter futures for people living here. By ordering furniture and upcycling from us with this finish, you’re helping develop people’s skills, people’s confidence and CVs for when people living here are ready to take their next steps.”
