We are beyond EXCITED to spotlight a wonderful organization that we are proud to support during Earth Month...
For over 30 years the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse (“The Depot”) has been a leading pioneer in the field of reuse. The Depot was founded in the late 1970s by a group of Oakland Unified School District teachers for the purpose of providing ecological, reused supplies at low cost to educators with dwindling budgets. The Depot’s primary activities involve collecting discarded materials by donation from businesses, manufacturers, and the general public, keeping the materials out of the landfill, and offering them for sale in the Depot Store. Our customers are typically, teachers, artists and households to which we sell supplies at low cost. Our staff offers hands-on education and advice to teachers and others on how to utilize reused materials in the classroom and at home. The Depot Store diverts over 200 tons of reusable material from the landfills each year.

We have collaborated with one of our favorite tattoo artists in the East Bay, Karen Roze of Sacred Rose Tattoo in Berkeley, CA. She has created an AMAZING design for us that is gracing reusable tote bags:
We have a limited stock of these beautifully printed bags that are available for a suggested donation of $10. All profits are being given to The Depot to support their mission of providing ecological, reused supplies at low cost to educators, students, artists, non-profit groups, and families in the Bay Area.
