It is great to see reuse and repurposing taking off across the Carolinas, with companies like the Scrap Exchange, Reconsidered Goods, and others leading the charge. Now South Carolina is officially joining the club with the new ReCraft retail store.

ReCraft is a startup non-profit based in Greenville, SC. They are South Carolina’s first creative reuse center — a platform to connect creative people with inspiring and low-cost materials. ReCraft’s focus is also to teach how materials can be used to make something new.

In the second quarter of 2019, ReCraft:

– Inspired 828+ kids with creative reuse during 16 programs and events.
– Diverted 20+ cubic yards of material from the landfill.
– Collected 28 donations from businesses and friends.
– Logged 200+ service hours from 29 volunteers.
– Partnered with 8 fantastic organization.
