Sarah Goff

Sarah Goff is Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Repurpose Project, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to diverting useful resources from the landfill, redirecting these items to the public for art and education, and inspiring creativity. What started as a dream to build a small creative reuse center has transformed into an all-consuming passion to build a local large-scale reuse economy and bring the concept of expanded reuse infrastructure to the mainstream climate change solutions conversation. Her TEDx talk, “Reinventing the Reuse Economy to Fight Climate Change,” outlines why a large-scale reuse system is so vital in addressing the climate crisis and what an expanded reuse system could look like. Sarah grew up in The Marshall Islands, which is just six feet above sea level. The injustice of climate change disproportionately affecting those who did not cause the climate crisis is a major motivation for her work.
