"To creatively restore the importance and value of things that have lost some or all of their original usefulness, and to encourage that creative process in others."
How Can we accomplish this?
People are creative! Even if you don't think you are, you are. It's how we were created. At Repurpose Addiction, we believe that creativity can impact our cities and our culture in really powerful ways.
One way to do that is through "re-purposing". Every single day items are being bulldozed into our landfills that could receive new-found purpose and life with a little creativity. Let's be honest, aren't we all a little tired of "cookie-cutter" furniture, household items, and clothing? Wouldn't you love to have some one-of-a-kind pieces in your home?
We get excited about taking things that have been discarded as having little or no value and tuning them into one-of-a-kind items for your home, man cave, business, or whatever. Whether it's turning an old worn out dresser into a bench, or turning and old broken radio into a cool lamp, or a vintage suitcase into a shelf or coffee table, we're committed to adding value to our lives by adding value to the things around us that have been cast off.
