RePurpose Depot Story
RePurpose Depot was created as a place to bring the material that results from our Residential Deconstruction work. The store is open to the public during regular business hours and by appointment. We are the partner warehouse for The ReUse People of America, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to keeping usable building materials out of the landfill.
Caroline Kostak is RePurpose Depot's Chief Plate Spinner. She is a Recovering Engineer, Residential Green Building Expert and teacher of Sustainability. She started her career learning building principles as an engineer working on the assembly of the International Space Station for NASA. One of the aspects of Green Building that she feels especially passionate about is building material reuse and keeping usable things out of the landfill. She serves as the Vice-Chair and Green Schools Chair of the US Green Building Council, Texas Gulf Coast Region. When she's not keeping things out of the landfill, she is a yoga teacher and has a business that teaches kids how to be Flight Controllers for Space Station.
