Jenn Evans, Executive Director, Austin Creative Reuse austincreativereuse.org
“Austin Creative Reuse is a local nonprofit with a mission to foster conservation and reuse through creativity, education and community building. In our creative reuse center in East Austin, we collect, process and re-sell gently used creative materials donated from individuals and businesses. To date, we’ve diverted more than 435 tons of usable creative materials from Austin’s landfills and hosted hundreds of workshops and community events to promote reuse, conscious consumption and a circular Austin.”

Sandy Stewart, Owner, Think Big Program thinkbigprogram.com
“Think Big Program works with independent small businesses seeking dollars to fund existing or new circular initiatives. She helps businesses align circular goals into their business strategy and prepare for making the money ask, whether it’s from lenders, investors or seeking grants.” Register to attend.
