So, if you ever wondered where I get all that 'stuff' in the art room, let me tell you! I belong to this recycling center! Trash 2 Treasure is a non-profit organization that has a mission to locate clean, re-usable materials and redistribute these items as valuable educational and artistic resources.
I have belong to this center for years. I renewed my membership as soon as I started teaching at Ely. By contributing nominal yearly dues, I am able to come to the recycling center and take as much as I want-as many times as I want, for my classroom. Individuals and businesses donate their unwanted items by donating them to this center in hopes that creative artists and educator will put them to good use. The video below gives you a little glimpse of the center. Maybe you would like to go...it is open to everyone! Ask me about it at school and I will explain further. Love you guys, Ms. B.
