Cracked Pots, Inc. is passionate about resource conservation. We are deeply committed to reducing waste and shrinking landfills. Our mission is to educate and encourage our community to creatively look at trash. Reuse is at the heart of all we do. Won’t you make a donation to help support our programs that include:
ReClaim It! – A retail store at,1 North Killingsworth in Portland, OR, where we sell materials rescued from the dump. At ReClaim It! we aim to take materials from the waste stream and inspire people to reuse, repair and reimagine them. Our volunteers glean items from the Metro transfer station, the last stop before they are trucked to the landfill. To date we have rescued over 300,000 pounds of materials that would otherwise have gone to the landfill.
Reuse Art Shows – Cracked Pots promotes artists who use recycled materials. through by sponsoring shows for artists and crafts people whose work employs at least 80% recycled materials. This year we will hold our 19th Reuse Art Show at McMenamins Edgefield with approximately 100 artists participating.
GLEAN - Cracked Pots partners with Recology, a resource recovery and recycling company, and Metro, our regional government responsible for garbage and recycling, to sponsor GLEAN, a juried art program. Each year five artists receive $2000 stipends and are given access to the Metro transfer station for five months to glean discarded materials to make art. The program culminates with an exhibition of their works at a local gallery.
