A prime example of too much of a good thing. Now that I’m aware of just how much good useable stuff that we throw away, I am compelled to keep it all. But, alas, we do not live in a mansion with my very own wing for crafting and craft storage.
In Portland, there is an amazing agency named SCRAP. Their mission:
…to inspire creative reuse and environmentally sustainable behavior by providing educational programs and affordable materials to the community.
I know, right? They accept donations to use during their affordable art/craft classes, and also to sell in their shop. A crafty cave of upcycle-able treasures including keyboard letters, floppy disks, all manner of paper, old magazines, envelopes, paint, and on and on.
Their website even has a tutorials, called Reuse Resources, including this floppy disk desk organizer.
I am so thankful to have an organization like this near my town.
