Mission Statement:

Teachers, group leaders, parents, and artists are able to obtain low-cost or no-cost recycled materials that offer unlimited creative opportunities to nurture learning, exploration, and discovery in classrooms, child care centers, youth groups, and beyond.

Business owners and manufacturers who have excess inventory, outdated stock, overruns, or seconds crowding their warehouse or office are eligible to participate in our tax-deductible recycling services. They reduce waste entering our landfills and help educators and service professionals with usable materials.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Extras for Creative Learning's mission is to stimulate creative learning and help children awaken their creative potential in education and play through the use of reusable, recycled, and surplus material.

Program History:

Extras for Creative Learning has been offering recycled materials and workshops to teachers, parents, and students since 1980.
