About REVIVE Paint

Eco friendly!
The REVIVE PAINT range is made from repurposed paint that has been filtered, remixed and repotted to make new colours.

Local!
REVIVE PAINT is made at the Cycle Sense workshop in the Skibbereen Showgrounds.

Benefits:

  • Reuses paint left at Civic Amenity sites and prevents it going for incineration.
  • Provides affordable paint for reuse to the public and community organisations.
  • Make a positive contribution to the Circular Economy.

What sort of paint?
REVIVE PAINTS are non-hazardous, water based paints for interior walls and ceilings. We sometimes have exterior water based paint too. The range of colour is always being developed at the workshop.

See table below to see the range of colours we have in stock. This will be updated regularly but not everyday so phone 087 924 2222 to find out if we have what you’re looking for.

Collaboration

This project started with collaboration between Cork County Council and Cork City Council and with funding from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Local Authority Prevention Network. Both Councils continue to provide great support. We are also very happy to be working with the staff of Clonakilty Recycling Centre and Derryconnell Civic Amenity site.

Usage Guide

Colour trends may vary. Please ensure you purchase enough paint from the batch to complete the job. As a general guide, 1 litre of paint should cover 10-12 square meters. Stir paint thoroughly before use and use as soon as possible. Store paint in dry conditions and protect from frost and extreme temperature. Clean brushes with warm water and mild soap suds.

Safety Information

Keep out of the reach of children. All paint is water based and non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation during application and drying. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. If paint gets in eyes or on skin rinse with plenty of water. If swallowed or gets into eyes please seek medical advice. The EU limit value of VOC content for this product (Category A/a) is 30g/l. Due to the blending of different paints, the exact VOC content of the product cannot be clearly determined. However, we only mix water - based paints which are generally low in VOC content.

Please note paint for reuse can only be accepted by Civic Amenity sites. If you have left-over paint, please don’t bring it to our wrokshop. We will collect it from the Civic Amenity sites.
