East Bay Depot For Creative Reuse
Located in Oakland, CA, the non-profit East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse is an ecological treasure trove of art and craft materials, educational supplies, vintage furniture, home décor, paper goods, fabric and much more. Founded in 1979 by two Oakland public school teachers, the Depot promotes solid waste diversion and resource conservation through the Depot Store and environmental education programs. The mission of the East Bay Depot is to divert waste materials from landfills by collecting and redistributing discarded goods as low-cost supplies for art, education and social services in the Depot Store. The educational mission is to increase the awareness of school children and the general public regarding the green benefits of reusing materials.
