Enter the National Reuse Contest by Oct. 31st

Thinking about entering this year’s contest? If you completed a project in 2017 using reclaimed building materials, send in your photos and story by Halloween to win great prizes!  You’ll find the contest rules on our submission form: https://podio.com/webforms/17994227/1209033 For more info about the contest, keep reading: ************ Every year, Community Forklift joins reuse centers across the country to participate in The ReUse People Of America’s National Reuse Contest. Any member of the public can enter by submitting their project to their local participating reuse store (that’s us!) for a chance to win awesome prizes.  Judges at each reuse center select the most impressive projects, awarding gift cards and bragging rights for first, second, and third place winners in each category. Those local winners are then submitted to the ReUse People to compete at the national level. The national winners receive gift cards redeemable for merchandise at their sponsoring store — $1000, $500 or $250 for first, second and third place, respectively.

Through summer and into fall, Tinker lived in a green and white plastic cage borrowed from a neighbor.  As grateful as we were for the loan, we were not fans of the cage.  It filled the living room with its pet-store plainness.  So I started to think about what I might be able to do to give Tinker a warmer, roomier home.  I researched online and found all kinds of grandiose projects, but...
