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.

Join us for ReUSE Minnesota's May Webinar
Thursday, May 16, 2019
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

The Power and Impact of Building Material Reuse

This webinar will highlight the multiple benefits of reusing and repurposing used building materials. In Minnesota, less than 30% of used building materials are reused or recycled, the rest are buried in landfills. The presenters will describe ways to reverse this inefficient, harmful practice and create economic opportunities statewide.

The presenters operate businesses that reclaim used materials and outlets for selling the reclaimed goods. Please join us to learn more about these social enterprises and discuss ways we can expand these businesses within a growing circular economy!

Panelists:

  • Steve Thomas, ReUSE Minnesota
  • Thomas Adams, Better Futures
  • John McCarthy, North Shore Architectural Antiques

Free to attend!

This is Part I of a two-part series. The second webinar, 'Policies to Promote Building Material Stewardship,' will be on Thursday, June 13.  Learn more and register online.
