Have you met Chris?
Chris is a valued member of the Reviva Toowoomba team. He joined as a Depot Hand when we took over the reuse shop contract in December 2018.
For Chris, the best part of his job at Reviva Toowoomba is saving quality goods from landfill and helping people reuse them. “You see a lot of the older-style furniture and stock that is well made and can be reused. We are such a throwaway society and there are only so many places where you can store rubbish. I think we need to reuse anything that can be reused.”
According to Chris it is the community spirit at Reviva Toowoomba that really sets it apart “We are a real part of the community. Through Facebook we are reaching out even more now. Our goal is to be a community based organisation that people can rely on.”
Be sure to say hi to Chris next time you’re in the shop!
