Refurrrb – Fireflies Dog Snood
As part of the values of Refurrrb, I wanted to ensure we could have more of an awareness to the environment. All packaging is recyclable and we strive to keep everything as eco friendly as possible.
Errol was my inspiration behind my business, since rescuing him in 2019 he has changed my life dramatically for the better. When buying him lots of nice accessories and being inspired to start making my own for him I did just that. I decided that buying fabric from a shop was very common and I wanted to do something a bit different.
I have always been a bit eco-conscious and after talking about it with my mum we came up with the idea of upcycling clothes to use for my fabric. This to me seemed like the best idea ever.
I buy the majority of my fabric from charity shops which helps support many charities, it saves clothes that would not be sold from going to landfill (0.8kg are incinerated yearly per person and 1.7kg are disposed of in landfills in the UK alone.) Friends and family also pass on clothes to me.
