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 big selection of recycled materials kids can create with.

CReATE is a mobile studio with limited storage. Due to storage limitations, I am only collecting materials on this list. If you have something that is not on this list that you want to ask about, you can email me at Click here for a printable donation list. Please donate only clean items.

“You are doing such a service for our environment plus stimulating all ages to be creative.  I really appreciate what you do…” Jean Gilbert Hawkins
