Mission Statement

We use creativity to encourage our community to look at trash in a new way. We promote art to encourage waste reduction and creative reuse. Reuse is at the heart of all we do.

Description

Crackedpots is a local non-profit supporting waste reduction through creative reuse. In the past, we have hosted community events and art shows featuring artists using sustainable methods and cast-away materials. Today, you can find our unique wares at our retail storefront, ReClaim It, where we rescue items from the city dump, the community, and our neighbors to encourage inspired reimagining of slightly worn and unwanted items. Currently, we offer a Repair Training Program where volunteers learn the handy, fix-it skills needed to make a worn item useful again. Another unique program is our GLEAN Artist Residency where local artists rescue items from the city's transfer station to create gallery-worthy art. If sustainability is important to you and you've been wanting a new, creative way to help clean this earth, come join us in upcycling on your free time!
