EcoBuilding Bargains is hosting its fourth annual EcoBuilding Bash on Saturday, May 11th, from 12:00PM-4:00PM! This is a free and family-friendly event to celebrate our customers.

  • DIY/Upcycling-Bird Hill Farm will provide several examples of projects and a process discussion related to creative reuse projects. This workshop will also include a demonstration and hands-on activity using reclaimed lumber, hardware, and paint from our showroom!
  • Green Building-¬†J & R Contractors will present on their current LEED certified project, and how they have been able to adjust and reuse reclaimed products throughout all stages of the construction process.

EcoBuilding Bargains, a non-profit enterprise of the Center for EcoTechnology, has served the local community for 16 years, (originally as the ReStore Home Improvement Center). EcoBuilding Bargains is the largest used and surplus building materials store in New England. Materials are donated from across the region, keeping nearly 500 tons of material out of the landfill every year.
