What is CCRx?

About CCRx

Who we are

The Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) is a 501c3 nonprofit that solicits donations of surplus materials, equipment and supplies for teachers and non-profit organizations.   We promote creativity and environmental stewardship.   Our goal is to educate and empower the public to reduce waste, rethink surplus, and share.   We do this through creative reuse programming, events and workshops. 


We believe that "trash is just a failure of imagination."
