About

ReClaim It! is Cracked Pots' unique resale store dedicated to curbing waste. Everything in our shop is gleaned from the Metro Central Transfer Station. That's right, the dump! We sell these salvaged materials in an effort to educate the public about the enormity of the wastestream and inspire reuse, repair, and reimagination in our community.

We do have a wonderful team of volunteers who do everything from staffing the shop to cleaning newly rescued items, to yes, even going to the Metro Waste Transfer Station to glean treasures!

A few of the activites we're seeking volunteers to help with are:

  • Brainstorming project ideas with customers

  • Cashiering (Possible after 10 hours of in-shop volunteering and staff approval)

  • Cleaning newly gleaned items

  • Creating engaging in-shop displays

  • Gleaning items from the waste transfer station (Possible after 20 hours of in-shop volunteering, staff approval, one in-shop training, and one on-site training)

  • Making price tags and in-shop signage

  • Participating in social media outreach

  • Repairing found items

As we're still a new organization, we're also very interested in any other skills volunteers may be willing to bring to the table. We're always learning and growing and are so thankful for all of our talented volunteers.
