Shop Smart

Be smart and save the planet. Buy reused goods!

Urban Ore’s number one competitor is the landfill. We all try our best to keep reusable and recyclable goods from heading to the landfill. When you shop with us, you are helping keep precious, dwindling, virgin resources safe by reusing what already exists.

Throughout its 40 year history, Urban Ore has been active in the politics of Zero Waste by participating in countless activist and advocacy actions. We’ve helped write several influential pieces of legislation that have become law through policymaker and voter approval.
