The Gorge Rebuild-it Community Project is planning educational programs and events aimed at sustainable building materials and practices, including recycled and reclaimed materials and materials with recycled content.
The Gorge Rebuild-it Community Project’s Waste Not Series began with a showing of the movie Bag it: Is Your Life too Plastic? The second in the series was a showing Oliver Hodge’s award winning film Garbage Warrior “about maverick architect Michael Reynolds who for more than 35 years has been passionately creating self-sustaining buildings from simple natural materials and the detritus of consumer society: tires, beer cans, glass and plastic bottles.” The Gorge Rebuild-it Community Project is committed to bringing you information about reducing waste and protecting the environment.
One of the Gorge Rebuild-it Community Project’s planned future events promises to be fun and creative – an annual contest made from goods found at the Gorge Rebuild-it Center. The challenge will be who can take the product and make the most imaginative THING. This event will stretch the imagination and give building materials a new life and meaning.
