We believe that by engaging the community in our mission we can move the needle creatively and environmentally. When we make craft materials available at a low cost to the community, we encourage creative exploration. When we build creative skills with reclaimed materials in our workshops, we start to change the perception about the value of everyday items. As we share our mission to divert usable materials from the waste stream, we help create a mindfulness of over-consumption and waste. As our community comes to value greater creative expression and reduction of waste, we move toward a more livable and resourceful society.
Since our opening in March 2019, 2,165 lbs of materials have been donated

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT NOVA CRC
NOVA Creative Reuse Center has a donation and retail space dedicated to all things Arts & Crafts. In our retail center you can find gently used or pre-loved materials such as fabrics, art supplies, kids activity kits, jewelry makings, sewing notions, and so much more! In an effort to provide affordable materials to our creative community, most of our merchandise is priced around half off the original retail value. All proceeds go directly towards supporting our mission.
