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 wastes tream 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 a growing 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.
We have flexible shifts doing a variety of tasks based on volunteer skills and interests.
