Trash for Teaching collects clean and safe cast-off materials from manufacturing processes (that would otherwise become trash) and repurposes them as educational resources. With those materials we provide a comprehensive arts education program in local school districts, which includes teacher workshops and classroom instruction. Our programs feature the popular Treasure Truck visit making our materials readily available to teachers and students in the schools, and helping to bridge the gap between the excess of waste created in manufacturing processes and the lack of materials in public education.
