In order to practice social distancing during this crisis, we have made the hard decision to temporarily close EcoWORKS to the public. We are hard at work “puzzling” out ways to help our community remain creative and get access to our “treasures.” We know that the act of creating in itself is a way to help us through this time. Information on our solution to this puzzle will be available on our social media starting Saturday, March 20, 2020.
To promote resource conservation, creativity, education and community engagement through material reuse, waste reduction, recycling, composting and zero waste strategies.
EcoWorks, Inc. is a creative reuse center and a re-Boutique gift shop of up-cycled and re-purposed goods made by Connecticut artists run by volunteers who are passionate about the arts and hate waste.
We offer low-cost art and craft supplies (scrap/surplus) to artists, teachers, and other creative people. We take items that may have otherwise ended up in the trash, and strive to have these items reused in a sustainable way as to not contribute to the waste stream.
In addition, we offer classes and workshops that increase skills and understanding of the creative arts using scrap materials, waste reduction, and reuse.
Promote creativity & environmental awareness.
Reduce waste and divert useful materials from incineration.
Inspire creative reuse & breathe new life into old materials.
