On November 15th, ReUSE Minnesota will be featured in a panel during the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's online Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF). Steve Thomas, ReUSE MN board member, was invited to participate in a panel led by students from Bard's MBA in Sustainability. These students developed a toolkit for network facilitators to enable circular economy innovation and collaboration within reuse organization networks, and are looking to discuss approaches for re-imaging donation, repair, and reuse.

Along with ReUSE Minnesota, Furniture Link and Austin Creative Reuse will be represented. This session will highlight the essential role of reuse network facilitators in the circular economy through motivating, inspiring, and encouraging other reuse organizations to innovate, create circular value, and strengthen their communities.

Mark your calendars to listen in on this event using the link included below.

When: Friday, November 15th - 10:30AM - 11:00AM CST

ReUSE Minnesota Wants YOU!

Are you a reuse enthusiast? Are you interested in joining a community? Are you looking for a way to support local businesses and organizations? Are you excited to volunteer and share or develop a skillset?

If you said “yes!” to any of these scenarios, then you’re a great fit for ReUSE Minnesota Ambassadors!

ReUSE Minnesota Ambassadors are our organization’s fantastic volunteers that support ReUSE Minnesota’s mission through a wide range of opportunities. Depending on your interests, experience, and availability you can:

  • Table at events and casually talk with people about the reuse industry, our organization, and opportunities to reuse, repair, and rent. Examples: Green Gifts Fair at Midtown Global Market, Earth Day celebrations, sporting events
  • Present at events and more formally share information about reuse, tips for reuse, and becoming involved with ReUSE Minnesota. Examples: Local businesses and nonprofits interested in incorporating more reuse, community education courses
  • Support an event and help with set-up/take-down or coordinating activities. Examples: Minnesota State Fair Eco Experience, ReUSE Minnesota conferences
  • Create content to share in ReUSE Minnesota’s newsletter and social media platforms
  • Provide a completely different skill or dive into an area of interest you think would benefit the organization – we’d love to hear your ideas!

After your initial training, there isn’t a requirement for how many events you need to attend or the amount of time you need to commit, so your involvement can flex based on your availability.

Our big upcoming event is a booth at the Minnesota State Fair Eco Experience this summer – the Repair & Reuse RoomSubmit an application today and we’ll be in touch!
