About the ReUse Ideas Project
Our United Villages inspires people to value and discover existing resources to strengthen the social and environmental vitality of communities.
The ReUse Ideas Project was born from a desire to encourage people to engage in creative reuse. Creative reuse involves discovering new purposes for salvaged materials, such as turning a door into a table or using a toilet as a planter. Creative reuse is a vital component of the ethos at The ReBuilding Center, where used materials often rely on the ingenuity of design to bring them back to life.
What makes the ReUse Ideas Project so special is that it is driven by the visitors and friends of The ReBuilding Center. We invite anyone and everyone to submit photos and descriptions of projects that incorporate salvaged materials. Whether you are making a bookshelf, building a chicken coop or re-designing your entire house, sharing these projects inspires others to become engaged in creative reuse and propels the movement towards a more beautiful and sustainable world!
