Local recycling organisation Fyne Futures held an open day at the new Re-Style shop in Rothesay town center on Saturday.
The shop, on the corner of Montague Street and Deanhood Place, was recently accredited for the new Revolve re-use quality standard offered by Zero Waste Scotland for its customer service.
It’s stocked with a wide range of furniture items, all of them donated from the island and all aimed at reducing the amount of landfill material generated by the island.
“More than a hundred tons of furniture goes to landfill from Bute every year,” Fyne Futures’ project manager Reeni Kennedy-Boyle said.
“Everything in the shop has come from people who realise that what they’ve got in their home is no longer what they want, or from people who are moving house and don’t want to take the items with them.”
