About Us

Providing housing to the houseless and fighting plastic pollution.

Recycled Living is a non-profit organization creating a real solution to houselessness and our recycling system. We use plastic waste to create the building materials to make tiny homes for the 14,000 houseless in Portland. This cleans up Portland while creating tiny home communities in our city.

How it works

Recycled Living works like this. We collect plastic from across Portland. This plastic is heated and compressed into a revolutionary building material that is free to make. These recycled bricks build tiny homes to achieve a free housing community for the formerly houseless in my city. This community is where the individuals get the help they need towards attaining jobs, job training, higher education, and more. Our non-profit partners also help with providing immediate help like food and clothes. All of this means we're able to recycle tens of thousands of pounds of plastic while providing free modern housing.

GoFUND ME FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Recycled Living’s fundraising campaign. This campaign will support Recycled Living’s mission of turning plastic into a place to live by providing funds to construct Recycled Living’s proposed free-housing community in Portland, Oregon. The community of tiny homes, built from recycled plastic bricks, will serve as a free place to live for families and individuals experiencing homelessness. This community is the first of many worldwide that Recycled Living hopes to construct. While the seed funding has already been raised, additional funding is required in order to complete the first community.

Mission

HELP THOSE IN NEED

THE PLASTIC

Throughout 2018 in Portland, more than 10,000 tons of recyclable plastic was dumped into our landfills to remain there indefinitely. Recycled Living’s approach to recycling utilizes all types of plastic no matter the material, size, or shape. This means all the recycling we collect from businesses, recycling plants, food courts, and off our streets all gets recycled.

THE HOMES

Providing free housing is the most direct solution there is to combat houselessness. By constructing the homes out of our recycled building materials we can lower the cost of construction down to 2.5% and build each home in less than 5 days. This simultaneously cleans tens of thousands of pounds of plastic from our community at the same time.

THE COMMUNITY

The tiny homes built will form Recycled Living communities. Through our partnerships around Portland, each community member is met with connections to other organizations and resources to get a job, further their education, and receive healthcare, food, clothes and more.
