Turning trash into treasure for your sustainable journey.
We turn trash into treasure because, well, we can! Too many renewable and usable materials end up in landfills, which you can read about here, so we stepped in to keep items in circulation and out of the landfill. We collect trash, primarily 5-gallon buckets and scrap wood, from local businesses across the Willamette Valley. By doing so, vast amounts of plastic that does not decompose for hundreds of years, as well as perfectly functional wood, is all saved from rotting in a landfill. Keeping pre-existing materials in circulation is a necessary practice in protecting our planet.
As a business, we not only believe it is vital to be sustainable through every stage in the manufacturing process, but also to give back to the community at large, which is another core value of Branching Together. This is why 10% of each purchase of a River Rock Necklace is donated to American Rivers, which contributes to fresh water preservation and cleaning up rivers. Also, one tree is planted for every wood product sold. Branching Together’s purpose for existing is to help solve the trash problem, to provide accessible knowledge to those who seek it, and to allow customers to feel good about supporting a business that is doing it right every step of the way.
