Day 48 – SCARCE was founded in 1990, when gently used books were rescued from the landfill and placed in the hands of those that needed them the most. Now, over 30 years later they have grown into an organization that is educating and helping others to make a meaningful difference in their communities and the environment.
SCARCE does the following:
- SCARCE provides award-winning programs that teach people how and why they should care for the Earth. Whether you are with a school, business, non-profit, or community group, they will help you make a positive impact for our planet.
- SCARCE guides schools, municipalities, and organizations to reach their environmental goals. They can assist with recycling, composting, energy conservation, green cleaning projects and more!
- SCARCE will help you find places to donate, recycle, or properly dispose of items you no longer need. Whether you are downsizing, de-cluttering, cleaning out, or retiring, they help you reduce your impact on the planet and get items to those in need.
- They have gently-used books and supplies for teachers, non-profits, and aid groups. They have books, school supplies, musical instruments, arts & crafts materials and much more.
SCARCE is located at 800 S. Rohlwing Rd (Route 53), Unit D, Addison, IL 60101
