To celebrate Revive Festival 2021 and Buy Nothing New Month, the Endeavour Foundation is offering Brisbane residents 20% off at Council Treasure Troves when you donate high-quality, pre-loved items at one of Council's four resource recovery centres during October 2021.
Once you've donated, take your voucher (issued at the resource recovery centre) to your closest Treasure Trove to find a bargain. The terms and conditions for the Revive special are included on the voucher.
