Check out our new Intro Video...

At the Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) we believe that "trash is just a failure of imagination." 
We are a 501c3 nonprofit that redistributes donated surplus materials, equipment, and supplies.  We keep good things out of the landfill and get them into the hands of people who can use them.  We focus on Chicago teachers and their students, non-profit organizations, and arts and community groups, but we're open to everyone. We promote creativity, a circular economy, and environmental stewardship through creative reuse programming, products, and partnerships. 
Our goal is to educate and empower people to reduce waste, reimagine surplus and make creative reuse a fundamental part of our collective infrastructure.
