We are pleased that you are interested in BENU, and glad that you want to participate! There are many possibilities to become part of BENU. You can for example...

Help as a volunteer

Whether it's by helping to build the BENU VILLAGE or by helping the BENU team at events or other activities: we regularly call for help on Facebook, Instagram, or in the BENU Newsletter. BENU also offers young adults the opportunity to gain practical and varied experience in the social area, especially within the framework of the „Service volontaire“.

Take an active part

BENU organises workshops and activities on different topics. In addition, we offer interested people the opportunity to take part in participatory projects - such as BENU METAMORPHOSE. This project pursues the artistic design of the outdoor and indoor areas of the BENU VILLAGE. You can participate, too! Don't hesitate to contact us!

If you can help BENU with information on the topics "sustainable clothing" or "reuse", you might even win a BENU Brain label! You can find more information on benureuse.lu et benucouture.lu.

Become a partner

Like us, you are active in the UpCycling domain and produce for example clothes, textiles or furniture without using any new products? Do you share the values and convictions of BENU? Are your products produced locally, i.e. within a 300 km radius of Esch-sur-Alzette?

If you produce exclusively in ReUse, Transformation and UpCycling, then you are at the right address with us. BENU helps you to market your products! We offer you to either sell them in our online-shop or in the shop in BENU VILLAGE or to exhibit them together with us at our events.

Are you interested? We look forward to hearing from you!

Reuse and donate things

Are you a private person or a businessman/businesswoman and have second-hand objects or materials in good condition that you no longer need? Then donate them on BENU REUSE and give them to interested recipients. On BENU REUSE, you can also find and order second-hand items for your own needs.

For our BENU COUTURE UpCycling creations, we use clothes and fabrics that are entrusted to us by private individuals. If you would like to donate old clothes or textiles to BENU COUTURE, please go to one of our BENU collection points.
