Our Mission

Treasure City Thrift, a worker-run nonprofit, supports local groups working for grassroots change.

• We provide material, financial, and promotional support to groups working for grassroots change, helping them to become more sustainable and continue their work in our communities.

• We transform waste into resources that benefit our communities; we link economic and environmental sustainability.

• We support local communities in our East Austin neighborhood, many of whom are historically marginalized and neglected, by providing community space, educational resources, and inspiration, and by making local and donated goods available and affordable to all.

• We are a radical economic experiment based on a collective model, using consensus decision making. There are no bosses here!
