ABSTRACT
The article reports on the furniture recycling project in being undertaken in Great Britain by Morph. The project collects furniture and appliances not needed anymore by households. These are then refurbished, repaired and sold at discounted prices in charity shops or the Internet. The program provides long-term employment to residents who have no gainful means of livelihood, and is a component of the training to make them productive members of the society. The project is run in tandem with Hackney council and Pecan, a charity organization.
