Why Support The I.D.E.A. Store?

Every day, vast amounts of our precious resources are used and then immediately thrown away.  Then, we replace them with new materials and they are disposed of and it happens again…and again…

Buying discarded wonderful stuff and reusing it can start to change all that. There is an endless array of creative and not-so-creative ways to reuse so much of what we just throw away!  And, by donating your home and industrial discards to The I.D.E.A. Store, your good stuff turns into valuable material for our greatest resource – CREATIVITY!

The I.D.E.A. Store is an enterprise of the Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation, which means profits from the store support initiatives in our local public schools. Learn more.
