Educator & Caregiver Donation Program

We strongly believe one of the best ways to recycle is to first, find alternative re-uses. With this mission in mind, we have been donating hundreds of gently used product to our local teachers, educators and caregivers for use in the classroom. We are now thrilled to formalize and expand our donation program to teachers, educators and caregivers throughout the United States. 

This is a completely free program for educators and caregivers. At this time we will even cover shipping of your requested items. (All items must be shipped to the United States). Simply click the button below and fill out the request form. Once we have your requested product, we will send you a note and ship it to you. Requests will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-serve basis.(Note: all product sent is with the intent of a donation to aid in classroom settings, absolutely no reselling of product is allowed. Doing so could lead to termination of the program and further legal repercussions.) Here are just a few ways to re-use our silicone products:

  • Snack sorting
  • Sort small craft supplies
  • Hold paints
  • Math & counting games
  • Non-slip mats for math games
