Reuse It: The Movie
As part of BRING's mission to change the world (one used window at a time), we made a movie: Reuse It. Take a look at the used building materials industry in Oregon, and learn why reuse is good for the environment and our economy. See how BRING and other organizations are leading the way beyond recycling.

"This video is a great resource to help Oregonians see how they can save money, save energy, and get a gorgeous one-of-a-kind new look for their home at the same time."
~ Kelly Hoell, Good Company
"We will be moving to a new office space this winter and are having a kitchen space built there before we move in. I thought about hunting around for used cabinetry, but didn't think it would be worth the effort. Now that I've watched Reuse It I'll march right over to the Rebuilding Center in Portland and find our new used kitchen counter and cabinets. I know I'll feel good about this decision. Thanks for the information and inspiration."
~ Trudy Toliver, Executive Director, EarthShare

~ Sasha Luftig, The Good Company
"A movie focused for all ages on the important topic of reuse."
