Monday, 3rd December 2012
This includes innovative business models to reduce the products and resources consumed and to increase re-use, repair and recovery capacity. Textiles, electrical and furniture products are a priority for WRAP. The objective is to reduce environmental impact, the amount of waste and the UK's reliance on the materials needed to make these products. However WRAP will consider applications of other materials that also demonstrate significant environmental benefits. The Fund is open to both commercial and third sector businesses and loans of between £100,000 and £1 million are available.
