I received my monthly email update from Rebuilding Together New Orleans, with whom I worked with twice in NOLA with my Fairfield groups. I came across this article and thought it was so inspiring and exciting to see that other cities are noticing efforts New Orleans is making and attempting to copy their model.
The ReUse district “comprises businesses and organizations in the 7th Ward, Bywater, Marigny, St. Claude and St. Roch neighborhoods that promote recycling, reusing and repurposing items. Members range from nonprofit groups to a used book and art store, a clothing thrift shop and even an art gallery with an urban farm made from reclaimed objects.”
Included in these neighborhoods is the Rebuilding Together office and their Salvage Store!!
