SCRAP Creative Reuse EDUCATION: LESSONS WORTH REUSING

SCRAP education programs teach the concepts and benefits of creative reuse with goals of sustainable behavior change; combining waste reduction, art and environmental education, and creative wellness. 

Our Organizational Focuses are: 

Art, Sustainability, Community, and Wellness  

Our Goals include enriching communities with creative reuse opportunities for individuals, families, schools, and communities to enrich and preserve sustainable cultural values and environmental lifeways. Inspiring behavior change with educational and creative opportunities for people and communities to inspire reuse and change behaviors to be more caring, resourceful, and sustainable. And providing unique and accessible programs that are focused on integrating the values of creative reuse into everyday activities and supporting creative and accessible educational opportunities.
