Since 2008, "The Depot" continues to serve the Southern California community as the ONLY Creative Reuse shop open to the public 6 days a week. Infusing Environmental Education + Art = Creative Reuse, their mission has expanded to include "Up-Cycling" During this past year, the Mayor of Long Beach proclaimed June 2, 2013 as "Creative Reuse Day" in honor of "The Depot's" 5th Anniversary. Your contributions directly help cover operating costs in order to continue as a low-cost resource for reusable items along with hosting free creative reuse workshops for the local kids.

As the resident artist of "The Depot", I can honestly say that growing up in the vicinity of so many interesting (and random) scraps and collections of "junk" has really influenced my view as an artist. The only thing we should throw away is the mindset that everything is disposable. This shop takes all those extra beads, fabric remnants, broken jewelry, half-used notebooks, and lonely buttons and adopts them out to the loving and creative hands of artists, teachers, students, neighborhood kids, etc. I believe that creative reuse is a survival skill that everyone, today's youth especially, should have. "The Depot' eliminates half if not all of the dumpster-diving. I feel that the neighborhood has truly blossomed in the 5 years that the shop has been here.
