Featured Non-Profit: Arts and Scraps

I had the pleasure of meeting the organization Arts & Scraps last month in Detroit for the Detroit Maker Faire (a faire based around new ideas for reusing, recycling and creating). At their booth, kids (and adults) used the recycled materials that were provided to creatively think about how these old pieces could be transformed into something new. It was so much fun to see the kids walking around with their creations.

Arts & Scraps started in 1989 with the mission of using recycled industrial scraps to help people of all ages and abilities think, create and learn.
