Home ReSource is an example of how we can work to protect our environment and still have economic vitality in Missoula. It’s a $1 million-a-year nonprofit business, employing 30 people. That’s based on garbage – or, rather, donated inventory. And because Home ReSource is locally based, all that money stays in Missoula and is reinvested in the community. It’s encouraging that others are seeing the value of building materials reuse, and other reuse centers are moving to Missoula and western Montana.
