Be a part of the social and circular economy and recycle or donate used leftover materials

We wish to encourage our partners and clients to recycle used products and resources including leftover materials from meetings, congresses and events to support local social, environmental, and economic projects. A way to reuse materials from meetings, congresses and events could be by collaborating with the company called THE UPCYCL, who can connect you with potential buyers of industrial materials that redesigns them and herein helps accelerate the circular economy.

A way to support local and social projects could be by reaching out to Kofoeds Skole with potential donations of leftover materials from meetings, congresses and events. Koefods Skole is a social institution based in Copenhagen, who aims to help vulnerable and mariginalized people in society.

Kofoeds Skole

Kofoeds Skoles mission is to provide aid for self-help to people who have social difficulties. The school works with teaching and education, training and resocialisation, emergency help and support for personal development, as well as treatment. Through its efforts, the school wants to help the individual student to increase the resources and competences with a view to being able to live a social and personal life as an integrated citizen in society.

Kofoeds Skole will be happy to accept furniture, but only by appointment per telephone +45 41 73 31 17 (between 9 and 12 every Tuesday and Wednesday). They will also be happy to collect fabric, skins and yarn, kitchen items (dishes, glasses, pots and pans), small musical instruments etc.

Your donations are used in various ways. Some of it is used to provide emergency assistance to the homeless and formerly homeless. Some of it is sold in their social economy stores, which are open to everyone and have special discount systems for the school's students. Some of it – especially leather, textile, wood – they upcycle in their ReDesign workshop. Surplus textiles will be shared with other humanitarian organisations.

The school and the school's students do not have the resources to repair worn-out furniture with defects or to give dirty and damaged clothes a loving hand. They therefore only receive the effects when they are in good condition.

All profits from the stores go directly to Kofoeds Skoles work with socially vulnerable people in Denmark.
