The Green Project’s mission is to develop a culture of creative reuse by building a marketplace for reclaimed materials and cultivating a respect for their value. In carrying out this mission our warehouse store diverts an average of 6 tons of usable materials from landfills EACH DAY, keeps 40,000 gallons of paint from finding our marshes annually, and prevents green house gasses from being produced.
