Skraptacular strives to increase environmental awareness by working with children and communities to transform trash into art and crafts all while teaching the concepts of sustainability, waste reduction, and smart consumerism. Skraptacular blends community, conservation, collaboration and creativity. While we started very locally in Northern Manhattan, we seek to reach all parts of New York City.
Skraptacular partners with the American Littoral Society on ‘Earth Day in Jamaica Bay’ a fun day of educational and community service events in Broad Channel, Queens. Bring your children, friends and family to help make open spaces greener and to help the salt marsh habitats thrive this year. Register and attend to win 2 tickets to the Jack Johnson concert
Skraptacular will be creating eco vehicles and engineering with fun trash
TD 5 Boro Bike Tour, the countries largest cycling event. As green partners, Skraptacular will be on the finish line collecting bike plates and creating art with them.
Although our raw material, trash, doesn't cost anything, it still takes resources to run an organization. Your donations help us continue our work with communities on a weekly basis across New York City and beyond, spreading the message of sustainability and environmental awareness. Any amount, large or small will help spread our mission
To help Skraptacular grow, we need a vast array of skills and talent. Please contact us if you can help with the following: --finding grants and opportunities --grant writing --curriculum design --technology support --community outreach --volunteering at events --social media sharing and updating --anything else you think might be helpful to our organization
Ordinarily we have plenty of our own trash but leading up to the Fort Tryon Earth Day Extravaganza this Sunday, April 27th we are in need of thoroughly washed milk and juice cartons. Other things we can always use are: --a studio space --industrial sewing machine --heavy duty Arrow staplers --storage space --Elmers glue --scissors for kids and adults --Modge Podge
We sprouted, we blossomed and now we’re springing ahead. Here are the highlights of our Third Annual Fundraiser, “A Springing Affair.”
In the never-ending winter we hope you’ve managed to celebrate Mardis Gras or Carnival. Take the last opportunity to step out of the Annual February Misery Day Parade and high step it into a Mardi Gras March! Skraptacular has a soft spot for NOLA’s Mardi Gras celebration; we got our start selling upcycled crafts to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims.
