It’s Not Just A Reuse Workshop. It’s Working Together.

Alex Eaves' Reuse Workshop in Derry NH

Recently, I visited West Running Brook Middle School in Derry, NH for the first official go at my REUSE! T-Shirt workshop geared towards kids. What originally was planned as a 2-hour session of storytelling and reuse education through shirt designing, turned into something even more.

Alex Eaves' Reuse Workshop in Derry NHMisty Crompton and the members of the school’s environmental club were such a great first group. Not only were they eager to learn about my work with reuse and create their own REUSE! T-Shirts, but almost as soon as I walked into the classroom, they wanted to share all of the ways that they reuse, both in school and at home.

And it wasn’t just the students who wanted to share their reuse ideas with me. My cousin Dora, who teaches at the school, was so excited to show me her latest repurposed creation. Her son David is expecting his first child and she made him a baby blanket, using his T-Shirts from when he was a little kid. This is such a great way to save money, save resources and share stories from his past with his new family. It’s also a great way to get the child into (well, on to) reuse at a very young age!

As with most of my engagements, not only was I able to educate a group, but all of us were able to share ideas on how reusing can be beneficial for people, planet, and wallet. Because the more we share, and the more we work together, the quicker we can make this world a better place.
