Inspiring People to Care for the Earth

About the SCARCE Mission Print E-mail

SCARCE stands for: School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education. The SCARCE mission is to:

Inspire people, through education, to preserve & care for the Earth's natural resources, while working to build sustainable communities.

It's easy for us on the SCARCE team to continue doing what we do. Why? Our motivation comes every day in the lovely notes of thanks we receive. The SCARCE Team is always deeply touched when reading these kind words in return for our environmental education programs and the SCARCE Rescue Programs.  Our many thanks to everyone who makes a difference at SCARCE - whether you volunteer 1 hour or donate $1 or send us some late-breaking eco-news. We're grateful to the people who support us each and every day! To see examples, follow us on facebook, or take a look at the Tesimonials page.
