About SCRAP

SCRAP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit formed in the 1970s and located in the Bayview District of San

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

SCRAP collects donations of reusable arts and crafts supplies and redistributes them for low or no cost. These materials are sold at our Depot, distributed at free teacher giveaways, and used for our up-cycling classes and field trips.

We support:

  • Education: We help teachers and students by providing free and very low-cost supplies and field trips.

  • The Environment: By diverting more than 200 tons of materials from landfills annually, we help reduce pollution from many sources.

  • The Arts: We organize creative reuse classes and events, and help artists, crafters and makers get the supplies they need at very low cost.

  • Workforce Development: We create good jobs in one of San Francisco’s least affluent neighborhoods. We also provide vocational training to developmentally-challenged youth through SFUSD’s WorkAbility program.
