About SCRAP

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.

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 arts and crafts supplies and reduces waste by diverting over 200 tons of materials heading to landfill every year.

SCRAP is a nonprofit social enterprise. Since 1976, we have made affordable supplies available to teachers, artists, community organizations, and others in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. This includes over $75,000/yr worth of classroom supplies provided to teachers at our monthly Free Teacher’s Giveaways. We currently have a staff of around a dozen hard-working Scrappers, who are helped by dozens of volunteers.

The community depends on SCRAP as the place to find all manner of materials for educational programs, creative projects, and their classrooms.
