Review for Ruths Reusable Resources, Portland, ME, USA
During these most challenging budget times, Ruth Libby, her staff, and volunteers should be credited with helping to keep many school district supply budges from completely going under. Her vision, to bring gently used or surplus items from local businesses to school departments is not only fiscally responsible, but environmentally friendly as well. The simple fact is that these items are completely usable, but otherwise would be discarded. "Ruth's" allows this not to occur, but also gives a second lease on life for the items that would otherwise end up in the trash. Personally, I am going on my third year at "zero" budget- NOT zero increase, but "0-" for my classroom, and the students I have get exactly what they need for their educational process. Ruth is the best!
