Our work with Motown Memories, a fundraiser for Rise and Shine Freedom School, helped us collect a lot of dishware. We helped make a 190 place dinner zero-waste! It was fantastic. Now we have a lot of dishes and folks are donating more to us! We now need to explore ways to make these items and others available in our community.
I was recently told about a lending group in Asheville where folks can check-out all kinds of items, reuse them and return them. It sounds like a great way to share and build community and reduce waste.
We are looking into creating a cooperative to facilitate this service in the community. Will it be member-owned or employee-owned? Where will we store items? How will we do this? Want to help us find the answers and make the decisions? Join us!
