There are so many ways to get involved at the shop!

The Turnip Green Creative Reuse shop is the heart of our organization with over 600,000 pounds of material diverted from the landfill to date, we process 100-400 pounds of material every hour we are open! These materials are put on the shelves of our shop and into the hands of members of the community, artists, children, other creatives to live their best second life!
By organizing and stocking our magazine and book sections, you'll be helping us give new life to donated materials by keeping them out of the landfill - doing what we can to keep the environment a healthy, happy shade of green!
Please check in at the front desk when you arrive. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and sturdy shoes you can move around safely in. Bring a reusable water bottle. There is a restroom on-site.
