About Taylor- the Owner/Founder of Portland Revibe

Throughout my life, I've become increasingly aware of many major factors impacting our overall ability to create a more sustainable future.

First, the manufacturing and commerce transition away from creating long-lasting products to more disposable goods that accelerate consumption.

The second being a lack in efficient and/or effective recycling service solutions.

Lastly, a drop in local trades across the US. These skilled individuals are vital resourcegs to refurbish used goods and build higher-quality products that can stand the test of time.

All of these realizations have pushed me to make more eco-sustainable changes in my own everyday life to consume less, reuse more, learn new skills, and support local small business communities and makers. These lifestyle values form the foundation of Portland Revibe’s mission.

Humble beginnings

At a young age, I'd go estate sale shopping with my Mom. I loved exploring the houses, learning about the history of the items we'd discover and the thrill of the hunt to find the perfect pieces to create a unique living space. It brings us such joy to find previously loved items with history that were built with such care.
