On October 29, 2011, we ran our first public materials collection drive. We sent out requests for materials like fabric, egg cartons and tins. The photo is of the first items that were dropped off that day. We had about ten people drop off items and an estimated 300 lbs of materials were collected. Thank you to all of our donors!
We held our first volunteer meeting on Thursday, November 8th, 2009
We meet at AAMP and Kami Wilt brought lots of amazing materials which we used to create mazes.
Kami wrote up a great blog post about the event on her Mungo blog.

In 2009, we started working on our logo. Christy Carroll was our designer extraordinaire. Due to her concern for the environment and the belief in our mission, she volunteered to contribute her time to us to create our logo. She provided us with lots of great ideas. The final concept we selected was based on the fact that there are many beautiful neon signs that contribute to Austin’s unique culture and the arrow concept for recycling. We are very grateful for the work that Christy did and the beautiful design that established the foundation for the look of Austin Creative Reuse.
