Material rescue

Rip out. Reuse. Repeat.

But what happens when you’re done? If the industry’s made it easy to buy and install materials, this same infrastructure should be used to reclaim and recycle them. We help you complete the circle and keep materials valuable forever.

What's Material Rescue?

You might have heard of ‘takeback’. Essentially, it’s the process of returning and recycling materials after they’re ripped out. Lots of companies claim to do it, but sadly, not many follow through. We’re passionate about making takeback actually happen, so we’ve given it the time and space it deserves. Introducing: Material Rescue.

We rescue materials by

  • Taking back samples
  • Taking back our own materials once you’re finished with them
  • Taking back packaging, offcuts and samples
  • Developing new materials from reused surfaces
  • Making used materials available to buy
