WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO:
WabiSabi is a nonprofit organization that runs a bustling thrift store in Moab, Utah. We strive to minimize waste and maximize resources in our geographically isolated town. Proceeds from the sales of donated materials are distributed to local nonprofit organizations and support WabiSabi programs.
WabiSabi’s mission is to increase the community impact of local nonprofits by providing money, materials, and mentorship.
WabiSabi’s hope is that one day everyone in Moab will use their resources wisely and share their excess with those in need.
The word “WabiSabi” refers to a Japanese concept, one that has many different English translations. The definitions that speak to our mission are those relating to the beauty of imperfection and transcending ordinary ways of looking at things. Properly employed, the imperfect is sometimes more than perfect!
