Uptown is part of Proper Job Resource Centre CIO. A second hand boutique based in Chagford Square, we stock a selection of quality donated pre-loved items as well as repaired, restored and upcycled pieces from the local community. We live in a throwaway society and we are passionate about helping to educate and facilitate people to make better environmental decisions.
We stock a wide range of good quality and affordable pre-loved clothing, furniture, homewares, books and much more. Our mission is to reduce waste, create jobs and volunteering opportunities, educate people on repairing, reusing and recycling.
Launched in 1995, Proper Job CIO is one of the UK’s first community recycling reuse projects. We are a Charity that aims to keep reusable items away from landfills, by putting them on sale in an Aladdin’s cave of pre-loved treasures.
At the resource centre everything from baths, crockery and clothes to garden furniture and building materials can be bought by you at a fraction of their original cost, meaning you not only save money but also go some way to leading a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
We are fiercely committed to principles of sustainability and educating to conserve resources. Our mission is to develop more UK initiatives around conservation, waste management and recycling of the earth’s resources. You are invited to join training sessions and skill sharing workshops. We offer these to promote the benefits of reusing, recycling and reducing in this modern age.
The objectives of the Proper Job Resource Centre are the protection and preservation of the environment by the promotion of waste reduction, reuse and recycling and advancing education of the general public about all aspects of waste generation, waste management and waste recycling.
