RRRA Mission Statement
RRRA members work together to promote environmental awareness and a stable environment through the widespread
use of clean, safe, reusable items for expressive arts, for hands-on learning in the home and in the classroom, and for creative play.
RRRA Action Statement
RRRA strives to fulfill its mission by:
- Making materials available to non-profit and educational organizations for reuse;
- Providing artistic and educational workshops on "what to do" with the materials;
