Since 1997, the S.C.R.A.P. Gallery has been addressing two of today's most urgent issues-the environment and the education of youth throughout the Coachella Valley and beyond. Their mission is to actively engage youth as stewards of their environment through concentrated, hands-on, education effort stressing the Four R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Responsibility.
The S.C.R.A.P. Gallery provides a link between industry, education, the arts, and the environment through its Field Trip Program, which features environmental presentations and exhibits, and its self-directed art workshops, which use recycled and reused material from the S.C.R.A.P. Gallery Warehouse, directly diverting materials from the landfill.

A discarded wrapper, tin can or empty detergent container all take on another life, an art form. Developing and demonstrating the integration of art and the environment is the goal of the Landfill Lunch Box Book. By using reused and recycled materials as the basis for arts and crafts projects, students can learn about taking care of the environment in a creative way! Available free to teachers in Cathedral City schools and Cathedral City residents!
If you are a teacher working at a Cathedral city school or a resident of Cathedral City and would like to receive a free copy of the educational materials, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 760.770.0369.
