The Second Life Of Secondhand Objects

How does a piece of furniture go from living out its final days waiting to be thrown out, to gaining a new lease of life in a freshly furnished home?

We follow the journey of an old shelf on its last legs as it waits to be rescued by a new owner, and watch as it transforms through a crafty makeover to find a new purpose in its new home.

Both an introduction into the art of upcycling, as well as an exploration of sustainable habits that can help reduce waste, this film takes the audience and filmmakers through the process of what it means to reuse and reduce as individual consumers.
