Use Reusables Grants
The 2022 Use Reusables Grant Cycle is Open!
About the Program
The Use Reusables campaign has an annual grant program that awards from $500 to $10,000 to help organizations switch to reusable transport packaging. The application window for 2022 is now open!
Reusable transport packaging prevents waste by replacing limited-life packaging used in manufacturing, transportation and/or distribution with durable alternatives that are designed for many years of use. Typical examples are the replacement of cardboard boxes with hand-held plastic totes or disposable plastic film used to secure loads onto pallets with reusable pallet wraps.
Who can apply
This grant is available to nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
- Reusable Transport Packaging projects must reduce transport packaging waste generated in Alameda County OR reduce packaging used to transport materials/products originating outside of Alameda County that are shipped with an end destination in Alameda County.
- Projects that seek to replace repurposed materials (such as used cardboard boxes that are donated to your organization) are not eligible.
Up to $10,000 per grant request.
