Full Circle

Keeping vintage lights in use forever

At skinflint, a vintage light is a light for life. So as well as offering a lifetime guarantee that includes repairs, our Full Circle buy-back scheme also gives you the opportunity to trade-in your skinflint lights in exchange for 50% credit towards a future purchase. Returned lights are then repaired, restored and recertified by our experts and placed back into the market. This is our commitment to sustainability, keeping lights out of landfill and in use forever.

Why keep existing products in circulation?

Because one of the most responsible things we can do as individuals, and as a company, is keep high-quality products, originally designed and made to last, in use. It’s called Product Circularity, and it’s better for our future than the ‘make, take, use, lose’ model that drives over-consumption and climate change.

"As a purveyor of reclaimed lighting, the circular economy is embedded within skinflint’s ethos. Now the brand is going one step further with their buy-back scheme..."
