Our mission at ReUSE Minnesota is to support sustainable living and prevent waste by connecting people to local, thrifty, and eco-friendly reused goods and reuse-related services.

We're building a team of volunteer ambassadors that will help us spread the power of reuse to organizations and individuals throughout the state. There are a few different ways you can get involved, including...

  • Writing blogs for our website and quarterly newsletter

Give as much or as little time as you like–choose just one or a few of these activities! Or, if you have different ideas about how your unique skills could contribute to the ambassador team, let us know.
