I first thought of reDiscover as a place where teachers could collect 'high quality recyclables' to use as art supplies, but then I found out it really is one of the only places where kids can learn to appreciate the value of the things they normally throw away.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Offer high quality programs that combined both art and environmental education to almost every elementary school and high school in Los Angeles.
