Creativity through Reuse - Welcome to ReCreate Ireland


Welcome to ReCreate

ReCreate sources unwanted, end-of-line surplus materials from business and makes them available to members such as schools, pre-schools, youth groups and art groups for creative activities.

ReCreate’s vision is to become:

A successful social enterprise inspiring curiosity, creativity and care for the environment. 

ReCreate aims to:
  • Provide accessible and affordable art materials/educational supplies to early education providers, schools, youth, community & arts groups and others nationwide.
  • Facilitate social inclusion and social gain throughout the community.
  • Provide quality work experience opportunities for those most distant from the labor market.
  • Divert materials from landfill and raise environmental awareness.

ReCreate is underpinned by the core values of: creativity, equality, social inclusion, transparency and accountability.

Check out this video of recent workshops using our materials and our Facebook page which is updated regularly.

For creative groups such as schools and youth groups, we aim to offer easy access to a rich and varied selection of textures, colours and shapes. Members are also able to participate in creative workshops facilitated by fully trained professional artists either in-house or on your own premises. We intend to be the first choice of teachers, early childhood educators and arts animators in the community.

For businesses, ReCreate reduces the costs of moving on end-of-line materials. We are a professional, credible and reliable partner organisation and our aim is to divert approximately 115 metric tonnes of clean materials from landfill annually. All collections are free of charge.

We are located just 3 mins from Exit 10 on the M50 (Ballymount). Many thanks to all at the Belfast Playresource Centre who have been extremely generous with their time, expertise and stock . We look forward to a fruitful partnership in the future.
