A community space to reduce, reuse and upcycle in Whangarei.


About The ReMakery

The ReMakery is an upcycle store and community space run by local volunteers. It focuses on keeping goods out of landfill and upskilling the community to learn how to do this.

We work together with community groups and organisations to share knowledge, space, skills and equipment. Our aim is to create a hub for the community to learn about all things waste and work together to reduce our community footprint.

Profits made go directly to Habitat for Humanity’s Home Programmes in order to help build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
