Fall 2017 Reuse Rockstar Competition Launch!

By: Shelby Kuenzli, Digital Marketing EcoFellow

Here we go again! EcoBuilding Bargains is kick-starting our Fall 2017 Reuse Rockstar Competition! Reuse Rockstar is a friendly competition held to showcase all of the creative ways EcoBuilding Bargains customers transform materials they find at the store into beautiful and innovative pieces. Last year, our customers turned a wooden beam into a light fixture, old wood into a rustic coffee table, old bowling alley lane flooring into a counter top and so much more! Check out these submissions from last year for some inspiration:

Check out our Facebook albums to see previous year’s submissions, or visit our pinterest page for more ideas!  Once you’ve completed your upcycling project with materials from EcoBuilding Bargains, send photos to our Facebook page or to gogreen@cetonline.org to submit your project. The winner will receive a $200 gift card to EcoBuilding Bargains and will have the opportunity to have his or her project featured in a video on our website! Please submit all of your reuse projects by October 10th. We can’t wait to see what you create!
