The Yellow Shelf Project provides yellow shelves to retailers willing to stock them with locally made, waste-free, toxin-free products that customers take home in their own containers. Everything from felted soaps and body sprays to all-purpose home cleaners and T-shirt bags are available from various Yellow Shelf Project locations in and around Portland, Oregon.

Create Plenty Community Services Group is behind the Yellow Shelf Project. Yellow Shelf is just one of the many activities designed to raise awareness through art and participation as well as create practical, sustainable solutions by making it easy for consumers to reduce and reuse.

Create Plenty's mission is to mobilize "people toward a culture of resourcefulness and intentional daily living, creating waste-free, local alternatives that are practical and accessible by all." The Yellow Shelf Project does just that.
