Thank you to our Partners!

Austin Upcycle Challenge Partners




We couldn’t do this without the concerted effort of our partners. Most notably, Austin Goodwill.  They donated the space, tents and their expertise.  Austin Creative Reuse is  provided a kids’ project (making a Father’s Day card) at the event and helped with the volunteer effort.  Re-Sourcery has helped with the impetus and communications for the event. Finally, we want to thank Austin Zero Waste Alliance as that group is ready with advice and know-how on who to go to in Austin concerning zero waste.  THANK YOU!
