Our partners

We work with organizations that share our goals.

When it comes to waste, recycling is often thought of as the best option, but it’s more like the last. That’s why our first priority is finding partners that can reuse, repurpose or repair items.

Is there a nonprofit, artist or community organization we should be working with on a collection item or event? Let us know!
