Pass it on Week 2015 is 7th to 15th March. It’s a week dedicated to encouraging people to get involved in re-use activity of all shapes and sizes. It could be swapping, sharing, repairing, upcycling or buying second hand

Online resources

All resources are on the Pass it on Week website for you to make use of.

Register your event

Before the week begins you can register your event on the Pass it on Week website. Events will be listed on the Pass it on Week website, so that people can browse for events happening in their area, so listing your event here means more people will know about it. Even if your event isn’t open to the public, this is a great way to show that your organisation is supporting the week.

People will be directed to the events section to find something local to get involved in, in all of the press and media work, so make sure it’s listed as soon as possible. Listed events will be promoted on social media and via local press releases as well.

List of events


The guide to everything you need to know about getting involved in Pass it on Week is available to download. The Pass it on Week toolkit has loads of info and ideas for the kinds of events you can put on, plus information on how to promote your event, case studies and more.

‘How to…’ Guides

There are seven detailed ‘How to’ guides for how to plan a number of different types of events, from an upcycling workshop, to a repair café or session,  to running a table top or car boot sale,  to a swish or setting up a give box.


Theer are a number of fab posters that you can update with your own information to advertise your event. Have a look at the different options, depending on what you’re planning.

Web Banners

There is also a selection of banners for you to use on your website, Facebook page, or as an email footer.


For those of you who missed the workshops, and as a reminder for those who did, there was a lot of great experience and insight shared by a number of organisations, so the  slides from the presentations ar ealso available.
