Raising the bar on how we Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair.
We’ve always taken sustainability seriously. We’ve always taken action. We’ve advocated plastic-free packaging for more than ten years. We’ve organised innovative recycling schemes for local schools. We switched our factory to biomass in 2013. Our skilled technicians manufacture here in the UK. To strict safety and environmental standards.
But the global environmental situation is more serious now than ever before.
Inspired by PATAGONIA Worn Wear, WORN LIGHTING is a set of tools.
They make it possible to extend the life of products we manufacture.
That’s you and us. We can share the responsibility.
CEO & Co-Founder
‘The most basic step as a manufacturer, is to design and build lighting that lasts for years. Screw planned obsolescence. It’s short-sighted. And it’s killing the planet.’
All items are completely safe. Comprehensively cleaned.
Re-tested. Re-certified to BS EN 60598.
Ready to be loved all over again .
All the details
Build to last
The most basic step as a manufacturer. We design and build lighting that lasts for years.
Timeless designs. Premium materials.
Cost effective repairs
Our lights are designed and built in our own Yorkshire factory. Any damaged light can be repaired.
We don’t want you to buy a new product.
Repair is better. And affordable. We make repair simple, hassle-free and cost-effective.
Many of our products can be modified. Size or colour can be adapted as required.
Package it responsibly
On-street recycling for UK homes and businesses is a start. But it’s not good enough.
Our packaging is 100% paper-based. It’s easily recycled by domestic recycling schemes in most areas.
Why Buy Worn?
Reusing lighting is good for your bank balance. And it’s good for the environment.
Buying “used” means that one less new item had to be made. Reusing the planet’s resources. Not digging for more.
Buy it Back
Most lighting purchased from us can be traded in. Get up to 40% of its original value (*excludes lightbulbs & components).
Your lights will be refurbished, re-tested, re-certified. And resold via urbancottageindustries.com/wornlighting
The planet is not ours to destroy. So we protect it. 🌎
