Donating materials.

“Nothing in nature is exhausted in its first use”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you for your interest in donating recyclables to CReATE STUDIO. I’m Jemma, the owner, and founder of CReATE.
I am passionate about creativity and reuse. I created the studio to provide opportunities for kids to connect to their creativity through the reuse of everyday items often headed for the recycling bin or landfill. Your donations (once I sort and organize them) become part of the selection of recycled materials kids can create with.

Due to limited storage, I can only collecting materials on this list. I cannot accept used craft paints or house paints. Aside from that, If you have something that is not on this list that you want to ask about, you can email me at
