We at the Scrap Exchange have declared July and August the Summer of Reuse! We will be highlighting a number of ways to promote creative reuse, zero-waste and upcycling!

This summer you can join in by:

Checking out our blog every week for July and August. We will be rolling out some ideas we found from across the web for reducing waste, reusing materials, creating some cool projects, and avoiding those pesky landfills. Check out the first blog here.

Make it a Plastic Free July. Join the 31-Day Plastic Free July Challenge! For the next month commit to different ways to go plastic-free. Join us as we join others around the world who endeavor to avoid plastic, prevent waste, and choose to reuse! Find out more at PlasticFreeJuly.org and take the challenge!

Smile A Little More. In your effort to reuse more and prevent waste, you may choose to invest in a few items that make that easier and save you money in the long run, such as beeswax wrap, a bamboo toothbrush, or a reusable water bottle. If you do decide to buy something new to replace single-use plastic items, save our planet and your money in the long run, please consider buying through Amazon Smile and support the Scrap Exchange as well! When you buy from Amazon through Amazon Smile and select the Scrap Exchange as your charity, Amazon will donate to the Scrap Exchange at no additional cost to you. It’s a win-win. (Then you can check out our blog for ideas for the Amazon boxes after your items arrive!)

We hope you have a wonderful Summer of Reuse!
