Happy 2013! Reuseolution Time!
Every New Year's Day people around the world make a resolution - this year BIG!NYC would like to challenge you to think about making a "Reuseolution" - a new year's resolution to reuse!
Here are some ideas from our staff:
"Saving all cotton clothing for reuse as wall insulation." ~ Will, Building Management
"I'm going to commit to composting all my kitchen scraps." ~ Max, Deconstruction Manager
"I plan to incorporate reuse in my gift giving in 2013, and I'm already inspired by projects I've found on Pinterest!" ~ Jack, Communications Manager
"I'm never going to buy anything new, ever again." ~ Harvey, Gowanus Reuse Center Assistant Manager
