Why Shop with ReNewy Living?

ReNewy Living is an online eco store specialising in a curated selection of quality preloved, creative reuse or new products that genuinely support your sustainable lifestyle. As a social enterprise, 50% of the profits from the online shop go towards ReNewy Living’s Newcastle-region environmental initiatives and workshops.

All items in the online shop have a story to share, whether that be the one you imagine its journey or one where I share the known provenance or history of the piece. Grab a glimpse into why the piece is of value, the known era narrative, and ideas for how the item can shine with contemporary style and love in your home!

My online eco store values and respects the diversity of sustainable living by:

    • Appreciating the quality, uniqueness and longevity of second hand. Shopping second hand recognises the value of resources already used and authenticates the products’ life span.
    • Valuing the breadth of reusing and upcycling with a range of creative resource supplies
    • Choosing new items that give a progressive and real solution to sustainability, such as being handmade, locally sourced or made, and made from natural fibres/ materials

When shopping with ReNewy Living, you’re supporting an independently owned small Australian business. A business that is truly committed to the strength of community and everyday sustainability.

$10 FLAT RATE POSTAGE for most of the Newcastle Region – enter your postcode at the checkout to discover if you can receive this special.
