We live in a challenging time. Climate change and mass consumption is threatening our planet's existence. Excessive extraction of natural resources has created immeasurable waste and pollution. This issue is complicated and imminent. While recognition and awareness is important, direct action is by far the most effective. But traditional recycling is not enough. The reuse mission offers a more sustainable solution that everyone can be a part of. REUSE! Because You Can't Recycle The Planet follows Reuse Pro Alex Eaves' cross-country adventure to the 48 contiguous U.S. states. On his journey, he finds endless reuse solutions for our waste problem that are not only sustainable, but many of which are easy and fun! And he learns just how reuse truly benefits "people, planet, and wallet."
I hope you're coming off a good holiday weekend and have been enjoying some leftovers, one of the tastiest forms of reuse out there! Speaking of leftovers, we've been releasing some leftover segments from the filming sessions for the REUSE! documentary.
Having filmed in 48 states, we got an abundance of footage. And with a 1-hour film, there were lot of great segments and stories leftover. So, we’d like to share some of these to give them the attention they deserve. They'll also get you better acquainted with some of the people and places in our film and showcase even more of the benefits of reuse. Our most recent leftover segment is from our Michigan stop at Reclaim Detroit, when Jeremy Haines tells Alex about some things that they've found while deconstructing abandoned houses in Detroit.
After watching that video, be sure to subscribe to our director Alex Eaves' YouTube Channel. You can find more leftovers, various reuse themed videos from Alex, updates on our next film project (the Box Truck Film), and more!
Thanks for the continued support of our film and the reuse movement. Have a great week!

P.S. For our Spanish speaking community, we now have a Spanish version of the REUSE! T-shirt that inspired the film. As Alex says, 'when it comes to this planet, we are ALL in this together. No borders can change that. No walls can change that. No language barriers can change that.' You can order the STAY VOCAL '¡REUSA! Porque El Planeta No Se Puede Reciclar.'
