One of our favorite creation ideas this month has been the amount of jet packs we’ve seen! What a creative way to spark an adventure and provide an outlet for the imagination.
From KSHB: A local nonprofit reuse store had a goal to collect 2,000lbs of used school supplies for classrooms in need – instead, the community donated 8,000lbs. Learn more >>
From Fox 4 KC: Scrap KC collected 8,000lbs of used supplies from the community that will be reused in public schools. The drive organizers are visiting 49 schools.
From KSHB: Scraps KC has been hard at work collecting used school supplies to repurpose for less advantaged schools and community volunteers, some of whom are homeless, are using their time to clean and repurpose the supplies.
From KSHB: Do you have a plan for your leftover school supplies? Scraps KC does. They’ll repurpose them to help equip less advantaged Kansas City Schools.
Join Scraps KC and the Historic City Market to Get Your Green On, a free family event to promote green lifestyle choices and sustainability.
About Scraps KC
Scraps KC is a non-profit, creative reuse center that strives to reduce industrial waste and home recyclables through the upcycling and creative reimagining of products and materials normally destined for a landfill. Creative reuse is the process of adding creativity to an already manufactured item to produce a new function in dynamic and artistic ways. Discarded items are resold to the public, such as families, teachers, artists, and other groups for further creative reuse. Workshops, birthday parties and other events also are provided by request.
