Description

Remainders Creative Reuse is a non-profit creative space with an arts and crafts thrift store. We are focused on creative reuse and sustainability. Thanks to the creative reuse model used in our materials depot, thousands of pounds of usable materials are diverted from landfills because households and businesses have donated to us. Thank you for your generous donations! Our creative space has hosted many intergenerational workshops, bringing together a diverse group of people to learn from each other.

Over 13,000 pounds of materials have been diverted from the landfill by recycling and promoting creative reuse, Remainders helps people contribute to the healing of the environment and raises awareness about the benefit of up-cycling raw materials and repurposing usable goods, as opposed to buying these materials new.

For over 8 years we have endeavored to build community within our neighborhood and city, and be a place where people of all ages and backgrounds work together, exchange ideas and make a difference in each others lives and in the community.

We have been provided education opportunities to over 8,000 people of all economic levels, engaging them in maker culture as a means of personal creative expression, while simultaneously educating artists, artisans and teachers to include creative reuse in their work and training them to teach others.
