I had a chance to talk to some of the folks who work at the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse about what they do. The East Bay Depot is a non-profit retail store located in Oakland, CA that focuses on diverting reusable items from the dump and selling them to teachers, artists and community members at low prices. It has an area where people can donate pretty much anything that they want to get rid of but don’t want to throw away. The East Bay Depot gives things that we have used up a new lease on life with someone else. Visit them at 4695 Telegraph Ave at 47th St in Oakland between the hours of 11am and 6pm to either donate or browse the selection.
