we were recently introduced to Kelley Carmichael Casey of SCRAP in Portland, OR. It is an amazing oranization that she runs where people divert useful materials from the landfill into a warehouse-like space for resale. The materials are organized, priced and offered to the local community. they become fodder for art projects, crafts, kids experiments and just about anything that one could dream up. SCRAP is growing nationally and seeing increased interest from people of all walks. we admire the work of SCRAP and support all they do.
