Organization Profile

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. OUR GOALS Maximize the diversion of reusable discarded materials from the solid waste stream. Collect and redistribute these materials to underfunded educational programs and organizations, teachers, artists, parents, and students in the community. Educate and benefit the community in the art of creative reuse. Our Focus: Education: We help teachers and students by providing free and very low-cost supplies. The Environment: By diverting more than 200 tons of materials from landfills annually, we help reduce pollution form many sources. The Arts: In times of rising prices, we help artists 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.
