Warp It

The Warp It vision is to be a network where buying new is the last resort and nothing is wasted. A network where reusable items are redistributed for their 2nd and 3rd useful lives. When the items fail they are diverted into repair and reintroduced later.

We want to reduce waste and carbon emissions. We want to make it easy for staff to reduce unnecessary purchasing. We want to make it easy for organisations to divert surplus resources to charity and SMEs so they can further their aims.

We want public sector, business and charity to collaborate to reduce resource use, encourage efficiency and sustainability.



Sustrans is the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. We are engineers and educators, experts and advocates. We connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute. Sustrans works in partnership, bringing people together to find the right solutions. We make the case for walking and cycling by using robust evidence and showing what can be done. We are grounded in communities and believe that grassroots support combined with political leadership drives real change, fast.

Not only are our diets putting pressure on the NHS, they are also placing unsustainable pressure on the environment. We can help curb this. Since the 1960s Quorn has pioneered the search for a more sustainable approach to food, encouraging consumers to make small changes to support a healthier future.

All Quorn products contain Mycoprotein, a nutritious, meat free protein that is naturally low in fat and high in protein and fibre. And, with an 80 per cent smaller carbon footprint than meat equivalents, it is not only good for our waistlines but the world's natural resources.
