Welcome to #ReuseCHI
Every year tons of materials are landfilled when homes and buildings are demolished. In 2015 alone, over 800 housing demolition permits were issued in suburban Cook County. Because of the County’s unique 3D Ordinance, valuable materials that make a house a home are now reused instead of ending up in a landfill. Reuse gives items a second life by creating another purpose for them.
ReuseCHI brings these materials into stores, informing consumers about the reuse market through guerilla marketing and tactical urbanism.
