The Green Project
The Green Project is largely known for our building materials warehouse store that diverts usable materials from landfills and puts them back into circulation in the community. We also teach and encourage good stewardship of our environment by supporting the mindful use of resources.

We’ve been keeping materials out of our landfills since 1994 by accepting donated building materials and reselling them to the public from our warehouse store at affordable prices. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity, we are able to offer a tax receipt for materials donated by businesses and individuals. These are materials that have little to no perceived value to their current owners, and so would otherwise go to fill up our local landfills, which are already overburdened. The Green Project takes these materials and puts them back into the hands of our community members for one-fifth of new retail costs.

The Green Project’s mission is to develop a culture of creative reuse by building a marketplace for reclaimed materials and cultivating a respect for their value.  In carrying out this mission our warehouse store diverts an average of 6 tons of usable materials from landfills EACH DAY,  keeps 40,000 gallons of paint from finding our marshes annually, and prevents green house gasses from being produced.
