  • Mission statement

    It is estimated that 55 million litres of paint are thrown away in the UK every year. [reference? ] FRP’s mission is to keep that paint from going to landfill, where it contributes to harmful methane build-up and can contaminate soil and water. We take surplus paint from re-use and recycling centres, re-mix it, make sure it’s in top quality condition and sell it on to individuals and community organisations. Given that new paint contributes 2. 4kg of CO2 to the atmosphere per litre, re-using paint in this way has a big environmental impact too.
