Who is Who Gives a SCRAP?
Who Gives a SCRAP fills a unique market niche and community sustainability need by diverting common household and crafting materials from landfills through creative reuse and re-purposing. We receive donations of well-kept, good condition materials that are no longer needed by the owner and resell them to teachers, artists, crafters, and others who re-purpose the supplies into newly-desired final use products. This business model fulfills an important environmental function and provides affordable supplies to those who need them, both of which are valuable to the community. Our mission is to be a champion of the environment, by encouraging re-purposing, re-using and up-cycling through educational programming, and by introducing innovative ideas in our community.
