We work to make reuse the norm; provide access to affordable building materials; teach home repair and building skills; and reduce the outrageous amount of stuff that goes to waste in landfills—diverting over 1,800 tons per year. Make a material difference with us!

Shop our Portland store, full of the region’s largest variety of salvaged building materials, all priced at 40-90% off market value. Keep materials out of the landfill while supporting our nonprofit mission!

Support Our Work
Your tax-deductible donation helps ensure that people and materials, particularly those perceived as liabilities and often cast aside by society, are instead respected and valued as assets. We thank you!
