It’s true! Boulder’s ReSource Store, a project of The Center for ReSource Conservation, is a 501 c(3) organization that accepts donations of architectural and building materials and then resells them to homeowners (like you) for their own projects.
If you’re getting ready for a home improvement project, you definitely owe it to yourself to stop by ReSource before you head to the bigger home improvement stores. All of the materials in the store have been donated by homeowners, contractors, businesses, and deconstruction experts.
Just imagine — a neighbor decided to re-do all of the window coverings in their home. You could walk into ReSource and find the perfect window coverings for your home — and not just have them for a song, but help out an amazing nonprofit in the process.
It’s not just window coverings, however. While the inventory varies (and drastically) from day to day, you can typically find everything at ReSource that you would find in your home. Here’s a list to of common items to give you a taste:
- Hardwood flooring
- Lighting fixtures
- Plumbing fixtures
If you want an even better idea of the types of materials you might find at ReSource, be sure to check their donations page for they types of materials they accept.
And since we’re on the subject — the next time you decide to replace something in your home, why not donate it to ReSource? The donations page has explanations for the conditions items must be in to be accepted as donations. Your donations are tax-deductible and you’ll be skipping the dumpster and supporting an amazing cause.
Every dollar your spend at ReSource goes to support The Center for ReSource Conservation. So by building something new, you can help them build better communities. Now that sounds like a win to us!
