- About Us
You may not have heard of us, but if you've purchased a plant in the United States, you've likely touched a product that was brought to retail on one of our assets.
We helped move the entire nursery industry away from wooden, disposable racking and on to reusable racking, which is now the industry standard for getting plants to retail.
Our expertise is managing reusable packaging programs for a number of companies in different industries, including automotive components, retail, and powersports. We enable them to leverage reusable packaging to reduce waste in manufacturing operations and shipping.
It's better for the environment, and better for balance sheets.
With over 10,000,000 recoveries for our customers, we are ready to do a lot more!
Reusability was founded in 2000 to meet the needs of nursery growers as they expanded to service nationwide retailers with reusable rack solutions. In the early 2000's we continued our expansion, adding large retailers to our network. In 2005 we signed our first asset management client. Later in 2008, our EZRack was patented. Since then we have added new retail partners and continued to innovate our offerings to better serve our growing customer base.

First introduced to his passion for the environment through outdoor sports, Ned explored the world and witnessed the impact humans can have by being wasteful. Waiting on the sideline was not an option, so he sought to combine the skills he gained in corporate America with his desire to take action to help the environment.
Fortunately, he found his tribe of like-minded entrepreneurial folks who share his vision of eliminating disposable waste. Now, he is living his dream and gets to help our team grow together to create a meaningful impact that lasts for generations. When he is not finding ways to increase our impact, you can find him in the sand or mountains with his wife, children, and friends.
Tim began his career crunching numbers in Public Accounting before joining a global leader in the Powersports industry. He worked on several acquisitions and high-growth divisions, fueling his passions for Finance, entrepreneurship, and the great outdoors.
If there is anything he likes more than balancing a budget, it’s balancing our carbon footprint, so Reusability was the perfect next step. Now he works on building our team, our systems, and our finances. When he is not proving to the world that you can save money and the environment simultaneously, he’s most likely “gone fishin."

Growing up in NY, traveling summers to National Parks, Ryan grew to have a strong appreciation of the outdoors. This appreciation, coupled with an inherent need to seek out efficiency and eliminate waste, led to a natural alignment with the goals and perspective of Reusability. Today, Ryan works to improve our operational methodology to create a more efficient system servicing the nursery industry and beyond. When enjoying time away, you can find him in automotive-related recreation of autocross and off-road exploration.
Max started his career as a grassroots organizer working on environmental campaigns, helping stop drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and support funding for our National Parks. He later started an eCommerce company, built programs for an Indian Microfinance Institution, purchased and ran an IT Services company, and led a software company through its acquisition. Through all of it, he's remained committed to fighting waste and protecting the environment.
He has degrees from MIT and Colby College and lives in Nashville with his wife, kids, dogs, bees, and chickens.
When she first started with Reusability, she was attending college and majoring in psychology, where she discovered her passion for working with people. That passion has continued for years at Reusability, as she has continued to grow within the company and help support its direction. Customer service and sustainability are what keeps her intrigued.
When she is not solving problems and servicing our customers, Lucy enjoys serving home-cooked meals to her family and friends.
