Mission Statement

SCRAP's mission is to stimulate creativity and environmental awareness in children and adults through promoting the creative reuse of materials that traditionally have been discarded as waste.

OUR GOALS
Maximize the diversion of reusable discarded materials from the solid waste stream.

Collect and redistribute these materials to underfunded educational programs and organizations, artists, parents, and students in the community.

Educate and benefit the community in the art of creative reuse.

Description

SCRAP is a non-profit creative reuse center, materials depot, and workshop space founded in 1976 in San Francisco, California.

SCRAP breathes new life into old objects and reduces waste by diverting over 200 tons of materials heading to landfill every year.

Donations of quality re-usable materials such as textiles, buttons, paper, craft and office supplies, plastics, and wood are collected from businesses, institutions, and individuals then sorted and made available to teachers, parents, artists, and organizations.

The community depends on SCRAP as the place to find all manner of materials for educational programs, creative projects, and their classrooms. By offering low cost supplies, creative reuse workshops, volunteer opportunities, educational field trips, art exhibitions, and more SCRAP gives students of all ages the opportunity to learn and pass on the value of creative reuse.
