Written by Bas van den Berg from Buurman
Buurman (neighbour) reclaims waste building materials from local partners; construction sights, musea, exhibitions and festivals. These materials are sold in the DIY building market to consumers, professionals, carpenters and artists. In the same venue there is a workshop where people can rent a working table and use the tools and knowledge that are available. There are building manuals and courses are offered for adults and workshops for kids. A very practical approach to circular economy, mixed with education, entrepreneurship, sharing economy and creativity - young to old.
