Minimizing Waste by Maximizing Creativity

Creative Reuse Centers

Leave a comment

As a mother to a three-year old girl I feel it is my duty to show my child that she can be, do, and, of course, MAKE anything she wants. Recently, while on my 1:30 am mompreneur lunch break, I surfed the internet for ways to donate our crafty scraps. That’s when I found them!

CREATIVE REUSE CENTERS


Creative Reuse is the process of taking used materials and making arts and crafts from them.

For educators, parents, and youth organizations, shopping at a Creative Reuse center is an inexpensive option when looking for school supplies, lesson plans, paper, etc. Some centers offer FREE classes while others double as galleries and event spaces.

I was prepared to spend the rest of my night creating a comprehensive list of creative reuse centers across the USA. But…if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right!?

Liz and Jeff of COSA VERDE have done a fantastic job of compiling a list of creative reuse centers by state and country.

Happy Re-Shopping!
