The Long Beach Depot is part of the Upycling movement - they play a key role in accepting donations of items that other organizations will not take - especially arts and crafts supplies and than distributing them to those in need for very little or for nothing. We all need to do our part but LBDFCR led by Lisa Hernadez and her daughter are doing great things for the Long Beach Community as they seek to Upcycle waste and divert from landfills. jeffrey s. lemanksy UPcycler in Chief @ Upcyclity.com

I first met Lisa in 2009, when we were in the midst of planning the first Green Long Beach Festival, she was this spunky and intelligent woman with a huge heart. From that point on, I witnessed her dedication and sincerity in serving the community of Long Beach. She has been a pillar of resources and inspiration to the local art community here along with teachers, youth and general public. I personally have been able to donate items that would otherwise end up in a landfill and benefited as a client. As a customer I found items for my DIY Wedding and to use in the classes I teach. She is always there with a smile on her face, promoting local artists and community events and shifting the perspective of how we view the world. This place is a true gem in our big city.

The Depot and the people who run it (Lisa and Yoshino) practice true stewardship. They have created this beautiful non-profit to help create a paradigm shift. Through their guidance they help people look at their world differently. Ordinary items that for many would appear as trash and end in landfills have now taken new light and serve as treasures for parents, artists, teachers, crafters and the general public. This is no ordinary business. The founders empower the community on a daily basis by hosting special events, classes, activities, supporting artists, partnering with neighboring businesses and like-minded organizations. They inspire us all to be more active citizens by engaging in the political process and always looking at how to make Long Beach a better place to live. Lisa Hernandez is a true leader and visionary. There isn’t anything quite like the Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse. As a resident I have been able to donate items from my household and as a business owner, I have had the luck to work with Lisa on various projects and am so proud to have this great resource as part of our “Green City.” I wish them many more years of growth and success.
