SCRAP: Scrounger’s Center for Reusable Art Parts, San Francisco

August 28, 2006 at 6:14 pm Leave a comment

Note: HIGHLY recommended for cheap and recycled art materials: foamboard, plastics, papers, cardboard, fabrics, etc. Non-profit organization for a good cause.

“SCRAP is a creative reuse center, store and workshop space founded in 1976 in San Francisco, California. Donations of re-usable materials such as textiles, paper, jewelry findings, wood, buttons and plastics are collected from businesses, institutions and individuals and distributed to art and educational groups.

By breathing new life into old objects, SCRAP reduces the amount of waste going to crowded landfills. By offering low cost art and re-use workshops and providing schools and organizations with badly needed art supplies, SCRAP stimulates creativity and environmental awareness.

Manufacturers save money on their disposal costs and receive tax benefits. Artists transform SCRAP materials into sculptures, paintings, and other masterpieces. Children and adults learn how to “REDUCE, RE-USE AND RECYCLE.” Anyone can contribute by donating clean, reusable materials that might otherwise be thrown away.”
