Impact 2018

In 2018, thousands of creative projects in the Philadelphia region were made using our salvaged and donated materials.
A huge thank you to all of our donors, volunteers, and customers – your creative reuse stories & photos this year included:

2,473 studio art, craft, and individual maker projects
58 film, television, theatre, and performance art productions
138 classrooms and educational institutions
34 events and activities held by community organizations
105 local businesses that used us as a resource
– and at least 1,407 homeowners who shopped at The Resource
Exchange for furniture, housewares, decor, and other home
improvement supplies rather than buying new!

We saved over 58,000 lbs of film & theatre props, set pieces, art supplies, textiles, lumber, and many other reusable materials from landfill by putting them back into the local creative economy. These materials included 20,872 lbs that were saved from film & theatre props and scenery alone, 3,936 lbs of fabric, and 5,477lbs of educational supplies.
