Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange

Every year, teachers scramble for supplies, furniture, books and other materials and every day, Chicago businesses dispose of a host of things that teachers could really use. The Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) is a new 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 reduce waste. Through online and physical exchanges, CCRx educates and empowers the public to rethink surplus materials through creative reuse programming such as workshops, webinars, and exhibitions.

CCRx is launching CCRx this summer with a city-wide Swap Circle. With the Chicago Teachers Union, we’re inviting businesses across Chicago to clean house of surplus that is clean, safe and working. Donate it to CCRx between August 7-9, and we’ll get it to Chicago teachers before school begins.
