Before thinking about recycling, consider giving your product a second chance by repairing, donating or upcycling it.
Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted items into new materials or products of a greater quality, and artistic or environmental value.
Upcycle and reuse
Did you know that you can upcycle our packaging by building a cardboard cat house or, if you don’t have a cat, cardboard furniture?
Well, know you know. Check out this Pinterest Board for inspiration.
Cardboard boxes are widely recyclable as part of household recycling programmes like Paper/Card bin or public collection containers.
How to prepare it? Flatten the box, remove tape and all non-cardboard protective materials, put it in the recycling bin and there you have it.
Repair or donate
If your electric firebox is still functional or could be repaired for further use, consider giving it a second life. Donate it to a charitable organisation or simply give it to someone in need.
Another good option is to repair or refurbish and sell it. Even if the product is out of warranty, you may still be able to get spare parts from us. Please go to our support form.
As a rule, electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) shouldn’t be disposed of along with household waste. EEE may contain hazardous substances which, if exposed, could cause a serious detrimental effect on the environment, wildlife, and human health. And we don’t want that to happen.
Products that should not be disposed of along with household waste will be marked with an icon of a crossed-out wheeled bin.
If you'd like to dispose of electrical or electronic equipment for recycling, we recommend that you take it to an authorised recycling collection point run by your local authority. For information about national collection points, visit https://www.ewrn.org/national-registers/national-registers
Upcycle or repair
Your mantel may have cosmetic defects, but it has a story. In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.”
Even without a firebox, your old mantel can be used for decorative purposes and can be repainted. We recommend using Annie Sloan paint to get a clean and chic result. Get a complete look by placing candles, real firewood or even plants in the center of the mantel.
The mantels shouldn’t be disposed of along with household waste. Take it to an authorised furniture recycling collection point run by your local authority. For information about national collection points, visit https://www.ewrn.org/national-registers/national-registers
