Borrow A Tool to Save The World!

Borrow Bus is an exciting and creative initiative created through the collaboration of four North East Wales towns. Areas covered in the scheme include Llangollen, Mold, Denbigh and Ruthin. Each town approached the project with a shared goal of allowing for local community members to have access to shared equipment. The Bws Benthyg / Borrow Bus scheme also gives resource equity to communities and individuals allowing for self-motivated learning through student experiences. The programme will reduce waste and CO2 emissions into the local and wider communities.

Our Inspiration

The Bws Benthyg / Borrow Bus project builds on the fantastic local work already being implemented by the Repair Cafes in Mold, Denbigh and Ruthin. The initiative developed by the four communities over several years has recently been successful in securing a National Lottery Climate Action Fund Bid. As the project expands we look forward to welcoming other communities who wish to take on a similar idea. Our team is always looking for new ideas that could help with the development of our work so get in touch.

Borrow and Use

Borrow Bus is the first initiative of its kind in the whole of Wales. With every tool that you borrow from the scheme, you reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills every year. Also in a modern society where it’s good to look after the pennies, you save yourself a large outright charge of purchasing tools or equipment you won’t use regularly. With our dedicated service, you won’t need to worry about maintaining or storing the item as after use we can collect.

Our Mission

Borrow A Tool to Save The World!

When you choose to borrow a tool from Borrow Bus, you reduce the amount of waste going to landfills each year and you save yourself the expense of buying everything individually, the cost of maintaining it and you can enjoy the space you don't have to allocate to storage. We have a huge range of items available on the bus so subscribe to our newsletter to keep up to date.
