Save Our Surfaces

Description

Save Our Surfaces is a national campaign that has been launched by Plastic Surgeon, the national surface repair specialist. The Save Our Surfaces campaign aims to reverse the throwaway approach and to get more people to think about repairing surfaces that get damaged. Most surface damage to wood, stone, brick, glass, ceramic, enamel and metal can be repaired, which means the damaged item doesn't have to be ripped out and thrown into landfill.

Join the Save Our Surfaces campaign and THINK, Can it be repaired?
