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 have a few pieces of exciting news. Over the weekend, REUSE! Because You Can't Recycle The Planet. was shown at a film festival in Argentina and just a day later, we were notified that it has been selected for another film festival in Barcelona, Spain! We're also in the midst of lining up numerous screenings around the U.S. for the fall and winter. The film and the movement continue to grow!
Also, as many of you know, we’re making a follow up film. I’m teaming up with tiny house builder Derek Diedricksen to convert a box truck into a mobile reuse education center and living space. There's currently only 7 days left until the deadline of our crowdfunding campaign and we would love to have all of the members of the REUSE! community involved. Contributions start at just $5 with some really cool reward levels, including your name on a T-Shirt or your own tiny house! Thanks for any support you can give; financial or otherwise.

Lastly, we just released a new 30-second REUSE! promo video that combines my passions of skateboarding and reusing. I'm pretty stoked on how it came out. You can watch it below. Have a great weekend everyone.
