Never Compromise on Style – Recycling Made Fab
Save money and keep memories, recycling is the name of the game today. There’s no reason to break the bank to live in style – here’s how and why:
Reuse, Recycle, LOVE:
Where you can, keep what you love and cherish the memories. Whether it’s me or those I’ve had the pleasure of working with, everyone has something that reminds them of good times gone by. Never throw away memories for the sake of something new and shiny.
It’s often the case that carpets and upholstery still have years of life left in them, they’re often just in need of a good clean. Cleaning is a great way to kick start your recycling and upcycling goals!
Here at the Rutland Cleaning Company we’ve helped breathe life back, and turned back the clock, into SO many homes.
A simple first pass, with professional cleaning equipment, on this cushion and armchair can show you how full of life your upholstery can be with a bit of TLC.

Vintage Chic and Recycling Retro Vibes:
If you’re set on buying something new, why not buy some history too!
Incredible style for a fraction of the price! One quick clean and you’ll be quids in – just see my portfolio for some of the amazing results I can achieve for you.
Recycling and upcycling vintage chic can bring so much character to a room and there’s an energy that something ‘fresh off the rack’ just doesn’t have.
A blast from the past that just keeps giving: set aside today’s mass-produced ‘look-a-like’ goods for something with style and history that was built to stand the test of time.
Recycling and upcycling don’t need to be an ethical crusade – be selfish, get something worth your money that you truly love, that will last and give you years of joy.
What Happens When You Throw Something Away:
Tempted by retro chic but not convinced yet? Cleaning, recycling and reclaiming carpets, leathers and other upholsteries could save you thousands of pounds!
Although our recycling efforts are working there are still over 130,000 tonnes of carpet waste in the UK alone – that’s an area the size of Birmingham thrown away every year! This ends up in either landfill or incineration centres. Less than 2% of carpet waste is actually recycled. In the long run, this costs the UK £16.5 million in climate change damages alone.
Looking after our carpets and rugs is an important environmental issue. By cleaning and revitalising carpets and soft furnishings we can keep them looking great for longer and reduce the burden on the environment.
- Less than 1 in 10 people consider repairing their furnishings to extend their lifespan!
- 32% of household bulky waste is re-usable in its current state. This figure rises to 51% if items requiring a slight repair or cleaning are taken into account.
- 22 million pieces of furniture are thrown out EVERY year and most of it ends up being sent to landfill!
- Highlighting the lost art of “waste not want not” this charity has reduced potential CO2 released from the things we throw by 53,000 tonnes!
- Local charity and antique shops can be treasure troves for finding quality rugs and furniture.
- Your home will look smarter after you’ve used professional cleaning services and your bank balance will be better off than if you buy brand new replacement items!
How You Can Start Recycling and Upcycling:
When I started writing this blog, I had no idea about all the facts and figures about recycling and upcycling our carpets, rugs and furniture. One particular fact really surprised me. I had no idea that so few people knew what to do when their home furnishings had run the course of their lifespan. So, I’ve made sure to include the links to ‘Carpet Recycling UK’ and ‘Recycle Now’ below for when you need something new and don’t know what to do.
