Cracked Pots, Inc. is deeply committed to reducing waste and shrinking landfills. Our mission is to educate and encourage our community to creatively look at trash. Promoting reuse is at the heart of all we do. By donating to our organization, you support programs including:
ReClaim It! – Our arts and reuse retail store, ReClaim It! sells materials salvaged from the "dump" for people to reuse, repair, and reimagine. Since 2014, our volunteers have saved nearly 500,000 pounds of reusable materials that were headed to the landfill! Located at 1 N. Killingsworth St. in North Portland, ReClaim It! is open 10am to 5pm, Wednesday through Sunday.
Reuse Art Shows – We sponsor shows for artists and craftspeople whose works employ at least 80% recycled materials. This year marks our 20th Anniversary Reuse Art Show at McMenamins Edgefield, with 90+ artists participating.
GLEAN Artists Program - 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 are selected to receive $2,000 stipends. For five months, they glean materials from the Metro Transfer Station to make art. The program culminates with an exhibition of their work at a local gallery.
Donation to Cracked Pots, Inc. qualifies the donor to make a matching gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust and to become eligible for a tax credit.
