Upcycling Marketplace, Remade in Britain are interviewed on Local TV Station

A while ago, in the midst of the big ‘Upcycle a Room in a Skip Press Launch‘, Founder of Remade in Britain, Donna Fenn along with Business Manager, Michelle Simpson were interviewed live on Leeds-based TV Channel, Made in Leeds.

The live interview about the launch of the upcycling marketplace, Remade in Britain discussed the big ‘Upcycle a Room in a Skip’ photography stunt which was staged in a Leeds recycling centre to showcase just how much useful items are sent to landfill. The aim of the stunt was to emphasise just what the items could become if they were saved, reused or donated.

Joining the Remade team in the studio was Ben from local West Yorkshire business, Re-Frmd Furniture Company. Remade in Britain wanted to let people know what it is like to be part of Remade and to be a professional upcycler.
