Zen of Scrap is a green boutique containing products created with 100% reused and repurposed materials from our very own Trash to Treasure Creative Re-Use Center. Our mission is to advocate creativity through reusing and repurposing and to help others discover that there truly is treasure in our trash. Our society throws away valuable resources everyday and Zen of Scrap demonstrates the beauty that can be created with our "garbage".
Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and then Recycle. Recycling is the last option....throwing away is not an option.
Join us on our journey to a sustainable future!
