Pondering Skies - Episode 3 - Reconsidered Goods

Download Transcript

In this episode, we hear from Paige Cox, owner and co-creator of Reconsidered Goods, a creative reuse center located in Greensboro, North Carolina. What's it like to start and run a creative reuse center? How can a reuse center respond to a pandemic?

Paige talks to us about her journey that led to the opening of Reconsidered Goods, things that she's learned along the way, how she and her community are responding to COVID-19, and what's next for the store. She reveals how a background in the arts has helped her craft a unique experience, and we'll also hear about some interesting stories behind the donated goods her store receives.

About This Podcast

This show asks the broad question: What does ‘sustainability’ really mean? Finding out is partly what this show is about. Doing the deep dive with each guest, I try to come at the concept from various perspectives.

In this podcast series, I'll take a broad view of the term, as we hear from educators, activists, community organizers, artists, scientists, designers, journalists, and more on what it means to them, and how they - and we - play a part in it.
