What is CCRx?
Who we are
The Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) is a 501c3 nonprofit that works with local and national businesses to source materials for teachers and non-profit organizations, to support creative thinking in our youth, and to reduce waste. CCRx educates and empowers the public to rethink surplus through events and creative reuse programming and workshops.
You've heard of the three r's: reduce, reuse, recycle. The Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is focused on reuse. We believe that "trash is just a failure of imagination."
