Alex Eaves

Alex is a reuse expert who embodies the reuse lifestyle. In 2008, Eaves began what he calls “the reuse life;” avoiding disposables and finding reuse solutions for his needs and wants. The following year Eaves began giving talks and leading workshops around the U.S. In 2014, he became a certified Master Reuser by the Reuse Institute and a year later he released the documentary, REUSE! Because You Can’t Recycle The Planet.

Since the release, Eaves has traveled the U.S. extensively for screenings and talks, including a month-long nationwide tour. The film has been viewed in over 20 countries and has been nominated for multiple film festivals. Eaves is also the creator and owner of the award-winning green certified reuse apparel brand STAY VOCAL. Alex grew up in Norwell, MA and now divides his time between Massachusetts and California.

I had always been eco-conscious and ‘re-use minded’ as far back as the 80’s, thanks to my mother, and quite proud!- then upon meeting Alex this past summer, my standards & mindset were just re-awakened! No longer is having the most ‘recycling out’ or having the ‘coolest bags’ in the supermarket my weekly goal!! Alex has both challenged myself and my business to strive even harder- to reuse more and advocate for his ‘cause’ because it’s really ‘my cause, your cause and all our future’s’~ “because you can’t recycle the planet.” – Beth Kalt, co-founder & Vice President, The Special E.

Box Trucking, Re-Using, and more!
