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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Depot inspires and builds unity in our community. It's a place where people of all ages meet and discuss projects and ideas together. My sister, a supporting artist of The Depot introduced me to them at the end of 2009. Since then, I have also been a supporting artist. They have made it possible for me, in these hard times, to make clothing and artwork, without having to spend a lot of money on materials, therefore allowing me to sell my products for a fair price. For the past few years I have made it one of my goals to have as low of an impact as possible on the environment. One of the things I have taken on is the challenge of reducing as much as possible the amount of trash and recyclable items I consume. The Depot does this quite well and in an organized manner, making it possible for visitors to find all sorts of colorful items. Therefore for me, The Depot is a planet saver, because they help "would be thrown away items" stay out of our landfills, keeping our city more and more eco-friendly and birthing environmental consciousness within our community. If I could, I would put one on every block. We humans consume too much and we need to wake people up before it's too late. The Depot has changed my life in such a positive way. I recommend The Depot to all my students, friends and family.
