About SCRAP

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.

SCRAP is a non-profit creative reuse center and arts education nonprofit founded in 1976 in San Francisco, California. SCRAP breathes new life into old arts and crafts supplies and reduces waste by diverting over 200 tons of materials heading to landfill every year.
