We are so grateful to the community for supporting our project. We have flourished over our 5.5 years of existence because of all the amazing folks in this area who care about our planet and the creatures who live here. As we’ve grown, we’ve seen more and more “stuff” and more and more people come through our doors which is also proving to mean more materials getting back into the hands of those who can use them instead of getting smashed and buried in our landfill. We are very proud that we have survived without grants or outside funding and that our sales pay for our basic operations. We are currently experiencing financial difficulty because of the additional fire safety requirements. Your support is crucial at this time because these additional expenses are proving to be more than we can handle.
Please spread the word about our event. It’s going to be a lot of fun and it’s going to help us continue our mission of diverting valuable material from getting wasted. Thanks for your support during this time of need.
