Unconsumption Says Goodbye! – Farewell to a Reuse Pioneer

Rob Walker recently ceased his tumbler Unconsumption. Unconsumption was an amazing resource for reuse inspiration. Rob cataloged hundreds of artists and designs. Check out the archives. Thank you Rob, we will miss you!

I dreamed up the word “unconsumption” back in 2007, for a New York Times Magazine column, and later pursued and refined the idea in various ways, most notably in this group Tumblr – which grew way beyond what I imagined was possible. It’s been an amazing run, and an honor to work with a series of fantastic and inspiring collaborators along the way.
