About San Francisco SCRAP (Scrounger's Center for Reusable Art Parts)
Founded in 1976 By Anne Marie Theilen, SCRAP is a non-profit creative reuse center, store and workshop space. Donations of re-usable materials such as textiles, paper, jewelry findings, wood, buttons and plastics are collected from businesses, institutions and individuals and distributed to art and educational groups. By breathing new life into old objects, SCRAP reduces the amount of waste going to crowded landfills. By offering low cost art and re-use workshops and providing schools and organizations with badly needed art supplies, SCRAP stimulates creativity and environmental awareness.
