Darren lives outside of town and goes to the Deep Creek dump each week to drop off their one tiny bag of garbage and some wood/tin scraps from projects. More often than not he comes home with much more than he left there.  In the above photo, he and his partner Lara are modelling the brand new shirts they found (still in the packaging!). Below is a photo of what they brought home from a single trip…

His work bench was created entirely from salvaged wood, complete with a salvaged vice that was modified to fit the bench. Darren also creates various pieces for sale such as funky birdhouses and beautiful toolboxes made from repurposed materials.

Here’s Darren discussing his low-impact lifestyle.
