SSE Opens ReUse 4 Good Resale Shop
Sustainable Surplus (SSE) announced the opening of its first resale shop, called ReUse 4 Good, in Escondido. SSE repurposes donated commercial surplus, everything from office supplies and furniture, to computers and lab equipment, to community organizations.
Until now, SSE has focused on repurposing items to educational, charitable, military and start-up organizations via its online store by the same name. “This is our first time opening the doors to the general public,” noted CEO Sue Prelozni. “This expansion supports our mission to divert still useful items from the landfill and make them available for reuse.”
The shop will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternate Saturdays. SSE is seeks volunteers to help with customer service during shop hours. To apply, volunteers can contact the office directly at 888.780.4416.
SSE has served close to 900 organizations throughout San Diego County. Through its reuse program, $3.2 million of items have been redistributed to those organizations, diverting more than 650,000 pounds of solid waste from the landfill. Companies interested in participating in the program should contact the director at the number listed above.
