It's ReUse Week in Portland!

June 27, 2011

Did you know? 10,000 tons of material creates 1 job when burned, 6 jobs when added to a landfill, 36 jobs when recycled, and as many as 300 jobs when reused.

Last Wednesday, we declared Portland's third annual ReUse Week - a celebration of local non-profits that embody the principles of reuse, sustainability, and community-building.

We had a great time at McCoy Park during yesterday's Sunday Parkways event!

Our button reuse station was a hit, and we introduced a lot of people to our organizations and their work to give items new life with families, teachers, and artists in our community.

ReUse PDX is a partnership of: Community Warehouse, Free Geek, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, ReBuilding Center, SCRAP, and Schoolhouse Supplies
