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 250 tons of materials from landfills every year.
Donations of 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.
Scrap is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization.
All of our workshops emphasize the importance of recycling and the creative reuse of materials. Workshops are designed to inspire participants to create art that reflects a commitment to environmentally sustainable behavior. In each class, participants will have the opportunity to utilize materials from SCRAP’s vast and eclectic inventory of supplies.
