The Sims Mobile- Eco Workshop

Presented by EA GameChangers

As of July 2020 a new feature has been added to The Sims Mobile called Eco Workshop, by working with Knox from Evergreen Harbor (Sims 4) you can upcycle and restore items to give them a new lease on life! In this post I will be covering everything you need to know about this feature including how the workshop works, what you can make and all the upgrades available.


Click on the questions below to go to that part of the post:

How do I unlock the venue? How does it work?What items can you make?What are all the workshop upgrades?


How do I unlock the Eco Workshop venue?

Once you reach level 9 or above you will need to visit Parkside and unlock the Eco Workshop for 12,000 simoleons (there is no waiting time once you click to unlock it)


How does the Eco Workshop work?

The aim of the Eco Workshop is to upcycle/repair items using materials-  you aren’t really repairing anything, you just need to collect enough materials to make that item, and then you will be able to place that item in your house! The materials (thread, tape and nuts and bolts) need to be collected by completing workshop shifts, every Monday you will see new projects to complete so you have 7 day to collect all the materials and make the items before the projects refresh.

You will start with 2 slots to create 2 projects, but you can have a maximum of 4, the other 2 slots cost to unlock:

  • 3rd Slot- 1,000 recycle tokens
  • 4th Slot- 2,000 recycle tokens

Recycle tokens can be earned by completing LlamaZoom

Items in slots 1 and 2 are common items whereas slot 3 are uncommon and slot 4 items are rare (a rare item is one that was difficult to get in the event it was previously available in):

The materials can be earned by completing workshop shifts and your sims will sometimes earn them when they complete relationship, career and hobby events. The materials you earn vary each day, you can find out which ones you can earn that day from the schedule tab:

The workshop shifts take 8 hours to complete and you have to wait for 4 hours before you can complete another shift but as you upgrade the workshop the shift time gets shorter.

Only one sim can complete workshop shifts at one time but each of them can take turns to complete shifts, you don’t just have to have one sim who is the eco hero

What happens if I don’t make enough resources within the 7 days? The resources you have already given to a project will be lost but any you haven’t used will be in your storage (you can only store a certain amount so you have to deposit resources in a project to be able to make more)

If you get to Sunday and don’t think you are going to have enough you can ask Knox for help, this costs simcash to buy the missing materials:

The workshop can be upgraded to improve the appearance and get quicker and better actions, click here to see all the upgrades.


What items can you make at the Eco Workshop?

Lots of items from previous events or offers have been added to the workshop but if you have already unlocked an item you won’t be able to make it in workshop. If you have unlocked everything already then you will be able to make some of the more expensive Home Item Collection items.

You won’t be able to recycle any items from your storage, you can only make new ones

Workshop Upgrades

There are 7 stages (there are 6 levels for each stage apart from stage one that only has 1 level so 37 levels in total) this is meant to be a long term feature so there is no rush to upgrade the Eco Workshop. You cannot customise the workshop yourself but once the workshop is fully upgraded you will receive an ‘Eco-Hero’ Trophy to put on display in your own house!

The workshop can be upgraded with recycle tokens which can only be earned by completing LlamaZoom.

  1. Hey! I want to unlock the fire bounty fireplace from the eco workshop but I still don’t have the 2000 tokens. I’m working on it though (I’m still 500 short) but I’m afraid that by the time I unlock it I won’t have enough materials to deposit. Do you know how many materials I’d need to pay to get the fireplace?

    • Sorry I don’t know how many resources are required, we don’t all get the same items to make each week. I wouldn’t worry too much about it though as it will probably come back around again in the future if you don’t have enough resources for it now.

  2. Do the third and fourth slots stay unlocked once you buy them or do they have to be rebought every week?
