Transforming trash, inspiring community for a sustainable earth. Some might say this tag line is a little grand for a fashion show motivated by trash creativity. But in fact our goal is to educate, inspire,entertain and take action to help create a more sustainably minded community.
Our first year, when we started planning Rubbish Renewed, we searched for like-minded organizations to collaborate with. We immediately encountered The Bend Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Like us their mission is to engage the community, not just thinking about their impact on the environment, but acting on it.
If you’ve never been, the ReStore is the ideal place to find treasures of used and surplus home improvement items. Donate your no longer needed building materials, appliances and home furnishings or discover that special object you were looking for. All proceeds benefit Bend Area Habitat for Humanity, providing home ownership, home repair & weatherization services for hard-working, low-income local families and individuals.
With an eye on the environment and the support of an important community cause, ReStore is the go to place for all your home improvement needs. Check out their offerings including a new “line” of up-cycled merchandise.
