The Bower’s Mission is to:

  • Reduce the amount of `hard waste’ going to landfill through education, repair, reuse and resale.
  • Raise awareness of the value of waste reduction.
  • Advocate for long life design, repairable products and the use of sustainable, recyclable materials for appliances and furnishings.
  • Encourage community awareness of environmentally responsible design and manufacture.
  • Provide affordable goods to low-income earners and other disadvantaged groups in the community.
  • Involve the community in the development and achievement of these objectives.
  • Generate employment opportunities and skills training in the community.
  • Contribute to the social and environmental sustainability of the Sydney community via these objectives.
