Each week on “On A Mission” Penny Kievet sits down with community leaders throughout Jacksonville. This week, Penny goes on a mission with Annie Murphy from Eco Relics.
Eco Relics is committed to reducing waste, repurposing supplies, and providing reclaimed and discount building materials to our community. They are devoted to reusing historic architectural building materials and are dedicated to finding creative solutions that keep building materials out of landfills and rehabilitation of historic houses.
Eco Relics created a place where people who share the same commitment to sustainable development can reuse and repurpose items we salvage, as well as sell us unwanted objects.
