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.
For Re-Make the Holidays Plastic Day jump into the new year with plastic bag twine jump ropes.
Re-Make the Holidays
Make imaginative eco pop-up puppets to prevent post-holiday boredom.
Join our Skrap fabric frenzy, using fabric scraps that would usually get tossed to make fun outfits for wire dolls or coverings for wire robots and creations.
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
