"Byggreturen" is one of Emmaus Ålands three recycle stores on Aaland. In this one you can find furnitures and construction materials. In the two other stores in Mariehamn and Godby you will find clothes, fabrics, kitchen supplies and other things for your home. Emmaus is an organisation independent of any political ideology or religion. Our aim is to help those in need, and thereby work for peace and justice. There are some 300 Emmaus-groups in 36 different countries. Emmaus contributes to reducing waste in our society by reusing and recycling. Through Emmaus all kinds of commodities get a longer life or a new use, and the environment benefits.
Emmaus Åland cooperates with organisations in countries were the economical and social divides are great. Emmaus Åland supports organisations in Estonia, Lithuania, Russia, the Ukraine and Peru. By reusing and recycling materials Emmaus Åland creates work opportunities and occupation for all kinds of people, regardless of their backgrounds or different capacities. At Emmaus all contributions are good enough.
