Our mission is to empower individuals to take greater responsibility for community environments by involving volunteers in litter prevention, beautification, recycling, and conservation education. Help Keep Indian River Beautiful by donating useful items to keep them out of the landfill. We also support local artists who take materials and turn them into something unique and beautiful. From jewelry to hand carved animals, you never know what you will find here!

Our goals for this unique program are to help divert perfectly good materials from filling the landfill and educate all generations to consider alternative uses before disposing of items. The store relies on materials donated by caring citizens who would rather see something be re-purposed instead of thrown away. In addition, we work with local teachers to help provide classrooms with materials for projects and crafts such as paper towel rolls, bottle caps, folders, paper and more. 


Our new boutique section aims to offer local upcycle artists a platform to show off their skills and offers a variety of hand-made items for sale. Open year-round, this eclectic display of reusable craft supplies, chachkies, and hand-made Upcycled art is a unique gem within our community.


100% of the proceeds are used locally to support waste reduction education, litter cleanups, and beautification projects.
