Review for Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is absolutely the best little shop that teaches us how to creatively reuse items that would otherwise ended up in our landfills. A must see place to visit when in the downtown area and definitely a Beach treasure!

Review for Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

"The Depot" has been serving not only the Long Beach community but all of SoCal for over 5 years now and there's a reason for this...It has and continues to be a much needed resource for teachers, students and our community! Please continue to support their efforts by donating funds to especially help cover rent which is $1500 a month! Thank you Depot for educating and inspiring me to Upcycle!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them to find a larger space that would be low-cost or no cost.

Review for Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a wonderful resource that really helps "build unity in the community". It not only provides unique materials at low-cost for artists, teachers, students and anyone who believes in helping the earth, but also provides excellent service by cross-promoting other businesses as well. It is an inspiring shop filled with ideas for any DIY project and the prices are unbelievable (many items at 25 cents or less!). They also have a Thank You from The President and Mrs. Obama and hosted 2 awesome events (Pepsi Refresh Creative Reuse Day and Really Really Free Day). This is truly a Long Beach treasure and deserves your support!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This is my go-to place first whenever I'm searching for something random to add to my artwork.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask them to get more support in order to open up more similar shops in SoCal.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I shop here first before any other supply store.
