Clever Octopus Creative Reuse Center
By partnering with Clever Octopus we are increasing our field of membership to include ANYONE that becomes a Clever Octopus member.
This also means we are supporting a nonprofit with a fantastic mission:
To foster creativity and environmental awareness through art, science, technology, engineering, and math.
We are educating our members about what a reuse center is:
A reusable materials* store and workshop for everyone, including teachers, afterschool programs, community organizations, artists, and families.
* A reusable material is something that would normally be sent to a landfill or left in storage but instead is donated by businesses and individuals. These materials are sold at 50-90% off retail to be repurposed and used for workshops, projects and art.
And, we are increasing access to supplies by including material donation bins in our branches (potential items listed below):
- Art and craft supplies
- Wood blocks
- Artist paints and canvas
- Beads & Buttons
- Cardboard tubes
- Plastic bits and pieces
