Reuse Hawaii

Reuse Hawaii

Re-use Hawai‘i was founded in 2006 as a solution to Oahu's solid waste problem. More than one third of Oahu's waste comes from debris produce by demolition activity.

We offer Deconstruction Services as an alternative to demolition. Our skilled teams remove structures by hand for the purpose of recovering the material for reuse.

What we’re doing

Recycle

We’ve been at the forefront of the repair revolution since 2006. Long before it hit the mainstream, we were busy recycling everything we could lay our hands on to make our business as eco-friendly as possible.

Fifteen years on, and nothing's changed. We’re still finding new ways to ensure our warehouse produces no more waste than the average household. Circular recycling plays a big part in this, we always return your custom lenses using the same bubble wrap wherever we can.

Reduce

With 25KW of solar panels on our warehouse roof and a whole lot of help from the Australian sun, we produce way more power than we consume. Great for us because we never get an energy bill. But our mission is so much more than that. We want to encourage everyone to reduce their consumption. Whether that means watching how much energy you use or just pausing to consider if you really need to buy more stuff.

Sustainability Resue

Award-worthy packaging

In 2019, we were nominated as finalists in the UK Design Week Award for our beautifully designed packaging.

Corrugated cardboard adds strength, while pre-used bubble wrap cushions your brand-new lenses on their journey from our lab to your door. Making a difference to the planet and helping our sustainability journey grow bigger and better by the year.
