Alex Eaves – Reuse Pro

Alex Eaves is a self proclaimed leader of the reuse movement. He got his start in apparel and is now on tour filming a documentary about the larger reuse industry. This is the first we’ve heard of Alex, but he is now among a long list of folks who’ve made similar proclamations. We love the enthusiasm, good luck Alex!

Alex Eaves; a guy who isn’t just pro-reuse, but more like a reuse pro. I live and breathe reuse every day. Through my blog posts, stories, photos, videos, and life in general, I aim to share the benefits and fun of reusing and why it’s important that we all choose to reuse a little more.

A few years ago, my brother was helping me rewrite my business plan for my brand, STAY VOCAL, as I wanted to incorporate reuse apparel more. He pressingly asked, “Well, what do you want to do?!” Without hesitation, I responded with, “I want to be the leader of the reuse movement! ”

Now I know what you’re saying, “leader of the reuse movement? That’s a lofty goal Alex!” But that was my gut feeling. And hey, at this point, it’s way more likely of a thing for me to be than a pro skateboarder or pro basketball player; both things that I had aimed to be in my younger years. Shortly after that meeting with my brother, I decided to take the first step towards my goal and change my brand’s focus from a mix of new and reuse apparel to strictly reuse apparel.

Niki Schillerstrom, Community Relations Director, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls said, “We’re inviting local artists from high school all the way up to professional to shop the store to pick out items that will offer at no charge to them, then they will repurpose it into a piece of art work that they will donate back to us.”

Schillerstrom is the brains behind the ‘Restoration Art Auction.’ Schillerstrom said once the art work is donated back, it will be bid on. The money will go towards the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore. Initially the goal was to raise $1,000, but Schillerstrom said so many people have expressed interest in creating art for the auction; they will most likely exceed that.

And South Dakotans aren’t the only people interested in the auction, so is one man, from Massachusetts.

“Reusing as a whole, it’s great for people, it’s great for the planet, and it’s great for your wallet,” Alex Eaves, a Restore Pro said.

But Eaves decided he wanted a more visual way to share the importance of reusing. So with a cameraman by his side, Eaves is traveling through all 48 landlocked states to make a documentary.

“Not only am I show casing how I reuse, and my brand, but I’m also teaming up with people in every state to see how they reuse in different ways all across the country,” Eaves said.

Sioux Falls was the 34th stop on his tour.
