End the Age of Waste

At Urban Ore in Berkeley, it is always a good day to Reuse, Repurpose, & Recycle.

These Hermin Miller office chairs are really fabulous. So ergonomic!!

Throughout its long history, Urban Ore has worked on building the reuse and recycling industries. It has been active in the politics of recycling, participating in regional and national organizations as well as countless activist and advocacy actions. It has helped write several influential pieces of legislation that became law by votes of either citizens or elected officials. It has designed community-scale Zero Waste facilities domestically and abroad. It has based its works on the concepts of founder Dr. Daniel Knapp, a sociologist who was listed in Who’s Who in Science and Engineering for his development of 12 Master Categories of Discarded Resources.
