You can help Repurposing Plastic Project innovate and expand!

We are poised to go big — both improving our Repurposing Plastic Project (RPP) and sharing our innovative technology with individuals and other communities — and we need seed money to do so.
What we are doing here in lil’ ole Taos and Questa potentially has a huge impact on reducing plastic waste worldwide — and we need your help to be both a Supporter and an Ambassador!

Here are two invitations for you to help RPP get to the next level:
On Earth Day this year, come enjoy fabulous food and friendship, contribute to a great cause, and feast on some good news for a change! The RPP team has a lot to celebrate this year with you. We’ll unveil exciting new developments and showcase new demonstration projects that show the innovative ways our community is turning waste into walls. Together we’re poised to launch to the next level. Come learn how you can be an ambassador to help our region repurpose plastic at a larger scale. We will reveal the RediWall 3.0, share DIY instructional materials and share news about upcoming workshops and volunteer opportunities.

Register now for our special event on April 22 at 5:30 p.m.
RPP Annual Expo & Community Dinner @ TiLT!
Register here — seating is limited!

With your help, we will make, market and sell 100+ RediWalls in 2023, diverting about 20,000 lbs of plastic from the landfill by turning that waste into walls!

If we do this right, this simple technology we’re developing here in Taos County can be shared like seeds and replicated most anywhere in the world.

We aim to raise $50,000 with this ambitious fundraiser to educate the public, train builders and customers, and continue to innovate and improve our products. Our modest goal: inspire and equip dozens and dozens of communities worldwide to follow our lead and turn their waste into walls!

To contribute to and share our GoFundMe fundraiser go to:
Gratitude for your ongoing engagement and enthusiasm for what we are building together here in Taos County and beyond!

Many thanks from the Repurposing Plastic Project Team.
