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."
As followers of our film, I'm excited to tell you that the REUSE! Team is making a second film about reuse. This time I'm teaming up with tiny home builder Derek "Deek" Diedricksen to build a living and learning reuse center inside a box truck!
This is a film for the people, by the people, so if you're able to contribute to our crowdfunding campaign, that would be amazing. We have some really unique and limited rewards for backers too. You can even name the truck! If you can't contribute monetarily to our campaign, sharing it with others online and offline would be a great help.

Thanks so much and please let me know what you think!
