WRAP’s vision is a world where resources are used sustainably. It works in partnership with governments, businesses, trade bodies, local authorities, communities and individuals looking for practical advice to improve resource efficiency that delivers both economic and environmental benefits. WRAP’s mission is to accelerate the move to a sustainable resource-efficient economy through:
- re-inventing how we design, produce and sell products
- re-thinking how we use and consume products, and
- re-defining what is possible through re-use and recycling.
First established in 2000, WRAP is a registered charity. WRAP works with UK governments and other funders to help deliver their policies on waste prevention and resource efficiency. Visit www.wrap.org.uk for more information or follow on Twitter @WRAP_UK.

Groundwork London is a social and environmental regeneration charity. For almost 20 years we’ve been at the forefront of environmental and social regeneration in London; changing places and lives for the better, in some of the capital’s most disadvantaged neighbourhoods. In today’s challenging social and economic climate the work we do has never been more important; creating better places, improving people’s economic prospects and helping people to live and work in a more sustainable way. We currently support thousands of households each year in saving, energy, money and water in their homes and operate a number of community reuse hubs which enable the repair and reuse of furniture and white goods, contributing to 'closing the loop' on product lifecycles.
