Continuing with our theme of eco-minded posts this week, I wanted to share a little Santa Barbara treasure and fabulous green resource for any DIY bride or groom.  The Art from Scrap Reuse store encourages reuse as a means of protecting the environment.

Local businesses and organizations donate an incredible variety of materials, supplies, containers, and Art from Scrap gives these items a new life as repurposed art supplies.  When you choose to purchase repurposed materials for your event, you are not only being kind to the earth, but you are also supporting the import programs that Art from Scrap offers the Santa Barbara community.

Art From Scrap is one of the leading environmental education organizations in Santa Barbara, California. Each year AFS Green Schools reaches 14,000 children through lessons and field trips covering the topics of Natural Resources, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Compost, Water Quality, and School Gardens.

Art From Scrap’s Reuse store keeps thousands of pounds of clean, reusable materials from ending up in the Santa Barbara County landfill each year. All kinds of treasures donated by local businesses and individuals – from tiles and tape, to paper and picture frames, to fabric and film canisters, to beads and burlap bags – are available as the perfect low-cost option for theater & art projects, Halloween costumes, Solstice floats, party decorations, and other creative endeavors.
