PlanetReuse in April issue of Popular Mechanics!

PlanetReuse continues to broaden it's horizons with our most recent mention in the April 2010 issue of Popular Mechanics magazine! You will find us in the "Upgrade: Smart Home" section among other sustainable companies with the following write-up.

"The main challenge of using second-hand building materials? Navigating the salvage yards to find what you need. Kansas City's PlanetReuse acts as your scrap agent, sourcing anything from ex-ocean-boardwalk lumber to brick from an abandoned factory. The matchmakers pair materials requests with new online listings in an operation so streamlined that the firm can often price salvaged items for less than an equivalent new material. Good thing - they don't mill it like they used to."

To name a few of our page-side neighbors, US HydroTech is mentioned for their graywater filtration system, Green Depot showcases their line of nontoxic cleaning supplies, and Energy Complete explains the importance of using their spray-foam latex sealer.
