We look forward to celebrating a range of unique and diverse creators at our first reuse fashion show.”
About Austin Creative Reuse
Our mission is to foster conservation and reuse through creativity, education and community building. Our vision is a community that consciously consumes and chooses reuse as a first choice when evaluating the need for personal or project materials. We collect, distribute and sell reusable materials donated from industry and individuals. We educate the community about how to reduce, reuse and create in responsible and fun ways. We unite the community by hosting a range of events, activities and classes that bring people together to build awareness around conscious consumption, sustainability and art. We promote awareness of like-minded organizations to reduce overlap and increase awareness of city resources.
