About Austin Creative Reuse:
Our mission is to foster conservation and reuse through creativity, education, and community building.
Our vision is a community that consciously consumes and chooses reuse as a first choice when evaluating the need for personal or project materials.
Through the discovery of the reuse of an object, a person will learn to evaluate use and purchase decisions based on the whole lifecycle of the object.
Every object has impact : All material items have a social, economic, and environmental impact that influences our relationship with Stuff; nothing is free.
Reuse creates awareness : Reusing items sparks creativity, awareness, and exploration, fostering inspiration and engaged learning.
Communities are powerful : It’s more fun to play together and collaborate with the experts in our area to conserve vital resources.
Action is Advancement : We believe in experimenting with new ideas and taking incremental steps to work towards goals.
What We Do
- We collect, distribute, and sell reusable materials donated from industry and individuals.
- We educate the community about how to reduce, reuse, and create in responsible and fun ways. We make instructional kits, have a library of design and art ideas, and share these online and in our Creative Reuse Center.
- We unite the community by hosting a range of events, activities, and classes that bring people together to build awareness around conscious consumption, sustainability, and art.
- We promote awareness of like-minded organizations to reduce overlap and increase awareness of city resources.
