The first and longest trading Tip Shop in Australia pioneering circular economics with the Glenorchy municipality


The first and longest trading Tip Shop in Australia

The Tasmanian re-use community, particularly Glenorchy are global leaders in practicing the art of circular economics.

Recovery TAS with our community of re-use enthusiasts, and Glenorchy City Council have specialised in circular economic activity for 28 years; and now in 2020, reuse is a wonderfully unique aspect of Tasmanian cultural life.

In Europe re-use has evolved into the second hand first movement AND ITS HUGE – waste has become the centerpiece of economic strategy. The second hand first movement is action oriented and provides great consumer choices and options which restore a diverse range of values to products and materials already in circulation including economic, natural, social, cultural and inherent. Second hand first really is the best thing we can all do to guarantee a sustainable future…way beyond just our lifetimes!

Come and visit and enjoy our Reuse Trail of fine found object Art. Shop enquiries: (03) 6274 1046.
