Damon Carson started a business keeping stuff out of landfills. Old street sweeper brushes find new life as livestock itching posts, firehoses as purses. What sort of creativity do these materials inspire in you?
“What is repurposing? It is taking a byproduct or waste stream such as a retired street sweeper brush and giving it a 2nd life as a backscratcher for horses or cattle. It is taking a decommissioned fire hose and giving it an extended life as a boat dock fender. It is taking an obsolete ski lift cable and giving it a second life as hand railing in a luxury condo building. Our company started focusing solely on material “repurposing” like in the examples above. You’ll find all kinds of crazy, offbeat industrial castoffs at our five different locations…Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Philadelphia…that could get a very different 2nd life.”
