School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education
SCARCE is an award-winning environmental education non-profit dedicated to creating sustainable communities. We accomplish this through innovative and hands-on education programs for schools and organizations, demonstrating care for our natural resources through our Book Rescue, and engaging the broader public through community-wide events and programs.
For over 25 years SCARCE has been implementing change to foster a more sustainable future. Find out how we can make an impact together.
SCARCE is committed to finding a way to keep “stuff” out of a landfill by finding a way to reuse or recycle as much as we can!
